I Think that Beckham is more than football player, he's not one of the best players, but i have no doubt that he's the most known in the world even for people that not like football.

Last sunday he was in Staples Center in L.A. seeing L.A. Lakers vs Denver Nuggets, the first game in first round of the playoffs for the title. I didn't knew that he likes basketball.

I agree with you, he is not the best football player in the world, but he is one of the most famous. In addition, when he plays football, he practises fair play, and this is important. He is really polite and elegant both in and outside football fields.
