Soccer superstar David Beckham was pummeled with eggs and tomatoes thrown by BARCELONA fans as he arrived at a hotel in the city Friday night (05DEC03).

Despite being under intense security after receiving death threats from the rival Spanish fans, an egg struck the Real Madrid ace's ear.

But cool-headed Beckham kept his cool and ignored the taunts.

Earlier, some Barcelona fans threatened the British footballer this weekend (6/7DEC03). One read, "He may not be alive by the end of the game."
