Whether it be donating his wages to children's charities or giving up his time to make a programme for Unicef, David Beckham has in recent times confirmed his position as one of the world's most generous celebrities.
Since retiring from football, the former Manchester United, Real Madrid and LA Galaxy star has set about using his huge fortune and his grand status to help those who most need it.
But it seems that Beckham, 40, is also providing aid to, quite literally, the man on the street when cameras are nowhere to be seen.

A paramedic and an elderly patient she was treating got the surprise of a lifetime after Beckham turned up with a tea and coffee while they were waiting for an ambulance.
They had already seen the former England captain walk past and were chuffed at that, but he returned with the warm drinks, even spending the time to take photos with Catherine Maynard, who works with London Ambulance Service's Cycle Response Unit.

The Good Samaritan
The senior paramedic told Sky News: "I was waiting with my patient … to transfer him to hospital, and although I was keeping him warm it was very cold outside.
"All of a sudden, I looked up and saw someone who looked like David Beckham walking past us. He said hello and got in his car. I said to the man I was treating, 'I think that was David Beckham.’ Ten minutes later, he came back with a cup of coffee for me and a tea for the patient.
"We were both very amused, and flattered. It was awful cycling around in the cold today and I couldn't believe it when he came back with some hot drinks."
Beckham's charitable work
Many have called on Beckham to be knighted for his services to both English football and charitable causes. He remains an OBE for now, but an upgrade is surely in the offing at this rate.
Most recently, he masterminded a charity football game for Unicef, played to a sell-out crowd at Old Trafford, featuring the likes Ronaldinho, his son Brooklyn and even Sir Alex Ferguson in the dugout.
That, coupled with the television show 'David Beckham: For the Love of the Game', helped to raise thousands for the children's charity. These grand gestures are, of course, commendable, but it is the little things that really prove he is a top, top guy.
