Paris Saint-Germain's preparations for their weekend clash with Nice were briefly interrupted by the arrival of David Beckham's children, who joined in with a pre-training kickabout with first-team stars Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva.

Eldest of the three boys, Brooklyn, teamed up with 10-year-old Romeo to keep the ball away from centre-back Silva, exchanging a number of neat passes on Friday.

It wasn't long before the Brazilian international had grown tired of chasing the shadows of the junior Beckham's, though, prompting a high-boot challenge on fleet-footed Brooklyn, who also showcased a couple of impressive tricks.

Romeo also caught Ibrahimovic unaware, dispossessing the Swedish striker with a sliding tackle, showing that the grit and determination often shown by his father, David, runs in the family.

Beckham was an unused substitute in PSG's 3-0 win over Nice at Parc des Princes on Sunday evening; a victory that restored the club's nine-point lead at the top of Ligue 1, moving Carlo Ancelotti's side one step closer to a first French title since 1994.

Jeremy Menez opened the scoring with just three minutes on the clock, and Ibrahimovic doubled the hosts' lead with a second-half penalty, before substitute Clement Chantome rounded off the victory in the closing stages.

PSG now have 70 points from 33 games, and due to their vastly superior goal-difference over nearest challengers Marseille are now just two victories away from claiming the title.
