That's right, you slap "David Beckham" on something and the 42-year-old hears "ka-ching!"

Years after retiring from professional football, he still has lucrative deals with Haig Club Whisky, H&M and Adidas - helping him rake in more money than some of the top current players, and making him one of the top-earning retired players.

However, in some sad news for his accountant, Beck's wallet has taken a slight hit this year, as in 2016 he was said to have pocked £71k a day .

Still, Brand Beckham is said to be worth £500million, so we doubt we'll see Vicky cutting up coupons just yet.
