David Beckham is in line for a knighthood

David Beckham is set to be knighted at the end of the year.

Prime Minister David Cameron and Prince William, who has been invited to be godfather to Becks’ new daughter, Harper Seven, are believed to be backing his case for a knighthood in the New Year’s Honours.

They were hugely impressed by his efforts to bring the Olympics to London as well as working tirelessly with them on England’s failed World Cup bid.

The Prime Minister said: “I pay tribute to David, who is an incredible role model in sport.”

Sir Trevor Brooking, the last top player to be knighted, also welcomed the possibility of Beckham becoming Sir David.

“I can’t think of anyone in sport more fitting to be awarded a knighthood than David Beckham,” he told The Sunday Express.

“He has been a fantastic ambassador for the sport both on and off the field, a true gentleman and role model.”

Becks, who met up again with Prince William when he visited LA recently, already has an OBE and has won much admiration for his patriotism and demeanour.

He looks set to be inundated with lucrative offers if he opts to come home when his contract with LA Galaxy expires in November.

Beckham is also being linked with a key role with the historic Great Britain team in next year’s Olympics.
