English soccer superstar David Beckham is appearing on TV screens around the world in the latest celebrity-packed PEPSI commercial.

REAL MADRID star Beckham, 28, dresses from head to toe in leather in the drinks promo, which also stars fellow soccer hunks RAUL and RONALDHINO.

The British star - who previously appeared alongside his former MANCHESTER UNITED teammates wearing cowboy clothes in Pepsi adverts in 2002 - agreed to a new $17 million (GBP9.45 million) deal with the soft drink giants earlier this month (FEB04).

The big-name commercial follows the company's recent ad, in which pop beauties Britney Spears, Beyonce Knowles and Pink appear as scantily-clad gladiators in front of Enrique Iglesias's Roman emperor.
