The former England international showed his softer side by helping a paramedic team which was waiting in the cold for an ambulance to arrive. According to BBC news cycle response paramedic, Catherine Maynard was attending to an elderly man who had taken a fall in Central London. 

Ms Maynard said that Beckham who spotted the duo on the street came up to them greeted both her and the patient and then got into his car. They were pleasantly surprised when the English superstar returned with cups of hot tea and coffee to aid the duo in keeping warm.

"We were both very amused and flattered," Maynard said.

"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'.

"It was awful cycling around in the cold and I couldn't believe it when he came back with some hot drinks -- I was so chuffed."

London Ambulance Service said Beckham had shown he "respects hard-working paramedics and even a gesture as small as buying a cup of coffee makes our crew feel appreciated".

The patient was taken to hospital where he was treated for minor injuries.
