David Beckham uses Tottenham chant to punish Arsenal-supporting son

Published 23 Comments

If you were not wholly convinced that David Beckham was not an all-around incredible guy, then his Love Of The Game documentary on BBC One, which aired on Tuesday night, will surely win you over.

Despite ending his career several years ago, the former Manchester United star has continued to use his power and influence for the greater good.

His latest mission, to raise awareness of his work for Unicef by playing a football match on all seven continents of the globe, also revealed that he can be quite the mischievous father when given the chance.

Travelling between Antarctica and Miami, Beckham managed to fit in a phone call to his family, but he was surprised to hear from his youngest son Romeo, who had stayed up way past his bedtime in order to speak to David.

Romeo, who supports Arsenal, was then told by the 40-year-old that he would have to belt out a verse of a well-known Tottenham chant in order to earn his father's silence.

"If you sing a Tottenham song to me, as an Arsenal fan, I won't tell your mum [you're still up]," joked Beckham.

The former England captain has been seen getting his kicks by winding up his three sons a number of times in the past, usually embarrassing his eldest son, Brooklyn, on his own Instagram account.

The 16-year-old, however, always manages to get his own back, most recently on Christmas Day when he covered his sleeping father in Quality Street before snapping a photo. Possibly conscious of the unflattering angle, Brooklyn did, at least, turn it black and white before he uploaded it.
