Becks flies in for surprise Welsh visit
DAVID BECKHAM stunned a small village in Mid Wales on Friday night, after landing his private chopper on a local football pitch.
The former Manchester United and Real Madrid star is thought to have chartered a private helicopter and landed on the pitch at Llanrhaeadr FC. The Powys football club joked on Twitter: “Terms all agreed. Con- tract signed. Only the small issue of international clearance.”
But the midfielder isn’t making a shock move to the club – he is thought to be in the area to shoot an advert, according to the Daily Post.
It’s not known what the advert was for, but the 42-year-old managed to take some time to enjoy the Welsh countryside.
He shared a video on his Instagram, which has 40 million followers, of the Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfalls which he captioned “Ridiculously beautiful”.
Some locals shared their delight at spotting the star, while others took to Twitter to share their disbelief that they missed him.
Twitter user @_Williams93 said: “The one Friday night I don’t go home and David Beckham casually lands his helicopter on the local football field...Absolutely gutted!”
Another with the handle @ Vaughaner_ said: “The one night I’m not in Llanrhaeadr I miss David Beckham... most disappointing night of my life.”
