‘All of a sudden I looked up and saw someone who looked like David Beckham walking past us.’

Retired soccer legend and current underwear model David Beckham made a paramedic’s morning when he bought coffee for her, plus tea for her elderly patient, as they were waiting for an ambulance.

On Monday, London paramedic Catherine Maynard was outside with her patient, trying to keep him warm as they waited for a ride.

“All of a sudden, I looked up and saw someone who looked like David Beckham walking past us,” Maynard told the BBC. “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,” Maynard said.

The London Ambulance Service later commended Beckham for showing that he “respects hard-working paramedics and even a gesture as small as buying a cup of coffee makes our crews feel appreciated.”

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