When it comes to fame, there are not many more well known faces than former England captain and style icon David Beckham - but even he is prone to feeling starstruck when meeting his heroes.

The Manchester United winger couldn't hide his pleasure at meeting singer Stevie Nicks after posing for a photo with the Fleetwood Mac legend following their gig in San Francisco.

The star, married to former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, took to social media to share his joy.

"What a night in San Fran seeing Fleetwood Mac. Stevie Nicks," he wrote, alongside an image of the pair posing for the camera hugging.
