A paramedic treating an elderly man who had fallen over on a London street received a shock when former Manchester United star David Beckham stopped by with tea and coffee.

Catherine Maynard said that she had been waiting for an ambulance with the man when Beckham walked past, before returning 10 minutes later with hot beverages for the pair.

"I was waiting with my patient for an ambulance to transfer him to hospital and although I was keeping him warm, it was very cold outside," she told the Evening Standard newspaper.

"All of a sudden, I looked up and saw someone who looked like David Beckham walking past us. He said hello and got in his car.

"I said to the man I was treating, 'I think that was David Beckham.' Ten minutes later, he came back with a cup of coffee for me and a tea for the patient."

Referencing the film Bend it Like Beckham, London Ambulance Service tweeted, "Thank you David Beckham for buying a tea and coffee for Cycle Paramedic Catherine and her patient #buyitlikebeckham."
