David Beckham came to the aid of a stranded British motorist yesterday (09.02.11).
The soccer player stopped in The Rain to help Paul Long and his two children when he spotted him trying to move his car off a busy main in Ware, Hertfordshire, South East England, after it broke down while Paul was on the school run.
Mr. Long told UK station BBC Radio 5 Live: "The car packed up as we approached a roundabout over the A10. After 10 minutes a car pulled over and a figure got out wearing a hoodie. As he got nearer it sort of slipped down and it became apparent it was David Beckham.
"He asked if we were OK and I said, 'Could you give us a push to the side?' which he did. Then he asked once again if we were OK and as he walked away, I said, 'Thanks David, I really love you.'
"I could only see his car in the distance, it looked like an Audi but I could not be sure of that. It wasn't flash."
Soccer fan Mr. Long admitted he was surprised the 35-year-old superstar sportsman - whose house is situated near the A10 - would take the time to help out a stranger.
He said: "I have always admired him but I'm his biggest fan now, although I feel a bit stupid that I told him I loved him.
"He's a genuinely top guy especially as he braved the rain to do what he did."
David - who recently announced he and his wife Victoria are expecting their fourth child together - is currently training with English Premier League club Tottenham Hotspurs during the Major League Soccer league off-season but will return to his regular team Los Angeles Galaxy on February 24.
