David Beckham to be knighted

British soccer star DAVID BECKHAM is reportedly set to become a 'Sir' in QUEEN ELIZABETH's New Year's honours list.

The much-loved sportsman, who already is the proud owner of an Order of the British Empire (OBE), faces a prestigious knighthood in honour of his services to soccer and his community work.
An insider tells British newspaper Daily Star, "The Beckhams are already showbiz royalty and now they look set to move a step closer to the real thing. "It is widely believed Tony Blair will put David forward for a knighthood in the New Year list. "He was a fantastic skipper and player for England and there's every chance he'll be back. He's also done a tremendous amount for children and the community."
