LONDON (WTXF) - Soccer superstar David Beckham is warming hearts all over the world after he bought a paramedic and an elderly man she was treating hot drinks on a cold day in London on Monday.
Catherine Maynard works for the London Ambulance Service’s Cycle Response Team. She was treating an elderly man who had fallen on the pavement when she saw someone who she thought looked like Beckham.
“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 said. “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.”
But she was pleasantly surprised when the man returned 10 minutes later with hot beverages in tow, and it turned out actually being the soccer legend.
“We were both very amused, and flattered,” Maynard said. “It was awful cycling around in the cold today and I couldn’t believe it when he came back with some hot drinks – I was so chuffed.”
Beckham also posed for a picture with Maynard.
