Beckham puzzled by Son’s Maths homework

David Beckham with his son Brooklyn England captain and Real Madrid midfielder David Beckham confessed that his six-year-old son’s maths homework leaves him perplexed.

The superstar thereafter had to call on his wife Victoria, a former member of the Spice Girls pop group, to help their son Brooklyn with a school assignment because the footballer found the sums too difficult.

“Their homework is so hard these days,” Beckham said. The 30-year-old style icon added, “It’s totally done differently to what I was taught when I was at school, and you know I was like ‘Oh my God, I can’t do this’.”

Multi-millionaire Beckham, who has become regular tabloid fare because of his dress sense and hairstyles, has had media questioning his mental alertness before. Beckham said that after failing in mathematics he offered to read a book with Brooklyn instead.
