David Beckham Gets Doused in Gold Slime at Kids’ Choice Sports Awards
Who’s handsome, athletic, and gold all over? David Beckham, of course!
The soccer star was honored with the “Legend Award” at the first ever Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports Awards, hosted by Michael Strahan Thursday and seemingly got more than he bargained for after his acceptance.
His sons Romeo, 11, and Cruz, 9, presented the award to their 39-year-old dad before they seemed genuinely surprised by the gold slime shooting out at them.
“When I was young, my dream was to be a professional soccer player. If you have dreams and you believe in yourself, your dreams can come true. Thank you very much,” Beckham said in his acceptance speech before getting doused.
