I have just lifted an entire story but not the 4 minutes and 10 seconds long video of the interview which is just too exciting (Zzzzzz!):
'On a relatively dull transfer deadline day David Beckham and Paris Saint-Germain stole the limelight as the 37-year-old midfielder was unveiled at a news conference full to the brim with French and English sports journalists. Beckham has signed a five month contract with the club but says his salary will be donated to Parisian children's charities. Victoria Beckham and the rest of the Beckham family will not be moving to Paris as their children are now at school in London.'
I am sure the chattering classes will wish to rub some salt into imagined wounds because a pillar of Britishness has taken a job with a leading French football club. Ironically it comes at a time when one of France's great 'runners' is about to skedaddle with his top international musician, singer and actress wife and their family to London. Oh no, not an athlete but the most recently deposed, sorry meant defeated, president of the republic.
Isn't gossip lovely? Well, errr? No, but I can recommend watching Beck's interview if you are insomniac.
