David Beckham says it is a ‘huge privilege to be famous’

David Beckham has revealed that he is enjoying spending time with his family since retiring from football.

The 38-year-old has also been describing what it is like to be famous around the world.

“I’ve been away such a lot in my career, I feel that when I am with them I should do everything possible.”

Beckham revealed he is currently trying to perfect risotto, and regularly cooks Italian after taking a six-month cookery course while playing in Milan.

The father-of-four said: “I feel a pang of regret whenever I watch sport; the sense that I will never play a big match again.

“I guess those feelings are inevitable when you have just retired from sport.”

Beckham now spends his days doing the school run, while his wife, Victoria, continues to work as a fashion designer.

Discussing fame, he said: “Whenever I go out people try to take pictures.

“I am not complaining, because it is a huge privilege to be famous and have a platform to do things that I believe in. But it can be surreal.”
