Victoria Beckham has discovered a passion for hiking.

The fashion designer - who is famed for her love of high heels - donned flat sandals for a walk below the Hollywood sign in Los Angeles and took to Twitter to tell her fans how much she enjoyed it.

Victoria, 39, tweeted: ''So good to be back in LA,and hiking,who knew? X vb (sic).''

She also included a picture of herself, smiling with her arms outstretched.

Victoria and her husband David moved back to London from Los Angeles earlier this year with their four children but still travel back and forth to America for work.

David, 38 was recently tipped for Hollywood success when mogul Harvey Weinstein compared the retired soccer superstar to basketball icon Michael Jordan - who starred in 'Space Jam' in 1996 during a break from sport.

He said: ''David can be anything he wants, including becoming a movie star. He doesn't need any advice from me, he can do anything he wants.

''I've known about David for many, many years, way before he even joined the [Los Angeles Galaxy soccer team]. He's the son of Michael Jordan!

''I have only met David a few times but each time I find his talents more and more impressive. I am a real fan. I think he could do anything he wants in TV and film.''
