David Beckham Lacks Basic Math Skills

I know what you’re saying, “two David Beckham items in one day!” I couldn’t resist posting this one either. We all know that David Beckham isn’t the brightest brightest lit bulb, but come on, having problems with his six-year-old son’s maths homework?

The England captain and Real Madrid midfielder was forced to call on his wife Victoria, a former member of the Spice Girls pop group, to help their son Brooklyn with a school assignment because the footballer found the sums too difficult.

“Their homework is so hard these days,” Beckham, 30, said in an interview with the Mail on Sunday. “It’s totally done differently to what I was teached when I was at school, and you know I was like ‘Oh my God, I can’t do this’.”

Said after failing in mathematics he offered to read a book with Brooklyn instead.

Well, at least he can read. Is anyone up for giving David a few tutoring lessons?
