Soccer superstar David Beckham doesn't mind signing autographs for his fans - because he still asks his sporting heroes for their signatures.
Beckham admits he is often inundated with autograph requests - and would never turn a fan away because of his own hobby of collecting signed items.
He says, "The whole experience of wanting someone's autograph is something special, especially when you're a little kid and you have heroes whom you look up to.
"I've been incredibly lucky - I've met so many great people like (Muhammad) Ali and (Michael) Jordan so that's quite a few autographs. I've got all that I'm proud of.
"Also when I was young I got one of my heroes' autographs, (British soccer star) Bryan Robson. So I was very lucky."
