The former England international was watching Jamie Murray, brother of Andy, and John Peers as they fought back in the men’s doubles semi-final against Jonathan Erlich and Philipp Petzschner to progress to the final.

In the opening game of the second set, Peers' serve deflected into the Royal Box for none other than Beckham on hand to catch the ball much to the delight of the Wimbledon crowd.

Murray and Peers were a set down at the time, but spurred on by the electric atmosphere created by Beckham's catch, they fought back to book a place in the final.
