David Beckham is pleased his Bodywear range is worn by men from ''all walks of life''.

The soccer star has teamed up with Swedish high street chain H&M to create a second range of male underwear and he says he was thrilled with how successful the debut collection was.

He said: ''We went through 18 months of research and development, so it was no surprise to us that there was a gap in the market for affordable bodywear where the focus was on fit, quality and comfort. What has been really pleasing is that my Bodywear is being worn by men of all ages, from all walks of life.''

David - who has four children, Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, nine, Cruz, seven, and 13-month-old Harper, with fashion designer wife Victoria - says it's important that his customers ''trust'' his products.

He told The Times newspaper: ''My wardrobe has evolved as the years have gone by, and I've learnt many lessons about style along the way. I have the same needs in my wardrobe as I do with my bodywear. We designed the Bodywear range with the aim of creating new classics that men could come to trust.''
