Thanks to a plethora of advertising collaborations with brands ranging from Adidas and H&M to Samsung, Sky Sports and Breitling watches, the former England captain is doing very well indeed.
Who said footballers only had one talent?
Although Beckham was one of the best-paid footballers of his time, it appears that he has found the pastures of retirement and subsequent advertising campaigns far greener than those of a football pitch.
Since hanging up his boots in May 2013, the Englishman has reportedly made more money last year than he did any other year during his footballing career.
Best year ever
According Forbes the former Manchester United and Real Madrid icon has had his highest-earning year ever, cleaning up a momentous $75 million. Not too shabby when you consider that his previous record-breaking earnings were $51 million in 2012.
Beckham, however, is not the highest earning retired athlete. That accolade goes to Michael Jordan, who made $100 million in 2014 courtesy, in the main, of the Nike-owned Jordan Brand.
