Becks in £15m ad

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE - ■ EX­CLU­SIVE by MIKE PARKER

DAVID Beck­ham will earn £1.5mil­lion for ev­ery word he says in a telly com­mer­cial.

The ex-Eng­land and Manch­ester United ace scored a £15.2m deal to pro­mote tele­com gi­ant Sprint and the iPhone X in the US.

And he says only 10 words in the 31-sec­ond promo.

The foot­ball icon earned more than £34m from ad­ver­tis­ing last year, ac­cord­ing to Forbes mag­a­zine. Becks, 42, is now the sec­ond high­estearn­ing for­mer sports leg­end in the US.

Only bas­ket­ball’s Michael Jor­dan has net­ted more, with just over £52m last year.

And LA-based me­dia an­a­lyst Mike Raia says sought-af­ter Becks is likely to over­take his ri­val next year.
