Soccer hunk David Beckham has extended his advertising contract with PEPSI - by signing up for a five-year deal.

The Real Madrid player has agreed to a $17 million (GBP10 million) deal with the soft drink giants, who have already signed up his teammates ROBERTO CARLOS and RAUL.

LUIS HERAULT, vice president of PEPSICO SPAIN, enthuses, "Our philosophy is to have the best and David Beckham is one of the best."

Beckham and his former Manchester United teammates previously starred as cowboys in Pepsi adverts in 2002.
