Brooklyn Beckham performs skateboard jump over David Beckham

Brooklyn Beckham has had a lot of spare time on his hands since he left football having been released by Arsenal last year.

The son of Manchester United legend David Beckham seems to have been spending much of his time honing his skateboard skills - and he put them to the test before showing the evidence to his 6.1 million followers on Instagram.

Brooklyn uploaded a video of himself performing a jump over his Dad at the Skatelab park, which is located in Simi Valley, California.

David, whose illustrious career took him from Manchester United to Paris Saint-Germain via LA, Milan and Madrid, earned plenty of praise for not even flinching as his eldest child sailed over his head - although he did make sure he took the proper precaution by cupping his private area.

Both Brooklyn and David have engaged in Instagram warfare in the past - although it was Beckham Sr who had the last laugh by trolling his son last year over his comparatively small following (below).

Since Beckham retired from the game back in 2013 he's focused his efforts on launching his own MLS franchise in Miami.

The former England captain announced late last year that he'd secured a site to build a stadium for the new team, in Miami's Overtown district.

Beckham's investment group said in a statement: “We intend to create an assemblage of private and County-controlled land totaling approximately nine acres in Miami’s urban core, within walking distance of multiple public transit options and the up-and-coming Miami River District.

“The private properties, which comprise the majority of the land, are under contract and we intend to purchase the County land at fair market value pending approval of our site by the MLS Board of Governors.”

A rending of the potential stadium has since been released, although no official design has been confirmed. Barring setbacks, Beckham's new team will enter MLS in 2018.

What do you think is David Beckham's greatest career goal?
