"When I saw him in the footballers lounge, all the other footballers were in the bar, but he was standing talking to his parents and I'm very close to my family and I loved that side of him."
"That first time that I speak to her." David adds in his recollection. "I just fancied her."
Victoria, who was also widely known as Posh Spice at the time, matches his sentiments, confessing "I just - I just fancied him. It was as simple as that."
Netflix reveals in a press release: "BECKHAM, a four-part documentary series, tells the inside story of a global football star and cultural icon. David Beckham is one of the most known names on the planet, yet few people know who he really is. From his humble working-class beginnings in east London, his drive and determination to win, and the battle to find balance between ambition, love and family, David’s story is one of immense ups and downs. The series takes you on that rollercoaster and builds a surprising, personal and definitive story of one of the most recognisable and scrutinised athletes of all time."
Taking to Instagram himself, Beckham wrote: "I’m excited to confirm that I am partnering with @Netflix on a documentary series about my life and career"
He added: "The series will feature unseen archive, untold stories as well as interviews with the people who have been a part of my journey. The series is directed and produced by Academy Award winners @fisherstevens and John Battsek. Watch this space…"
Beckham enjoyed a hugely successful football career where he represented the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid and made 115 appearances for England.
While his marriage to Spice Girl Victoria Beckham has kept the pair in the spotlight, the footballer's businesses and tireless charity work and advocacy has made him one of the biggest icons of his time.
