Becks tries to escape the cameras

David Beckham thrilled a group of tourists in Hollywood this week when they spotted him running across a road in nothing but a pair of pants.

The group were on a bus tour of movie stars’ homes and caught sight of Becks as he filmed a sexy new campaign for his H&M underwear range.

David, 37, covered his manhood as he tried to escape the cameras by running through shrubbery to get to his car but the thrilled onlookers managed to capture the whole event.

Becks seemed to take the incident in good humour as he laughed and smiled towards those on the bus.

The footballer can’t have minded being snapped in his tight green underwear too much – he recently spoke about how much he enjoys wearing skimpy briefs.

‘I mean, I like tighty whities. Someone asked me about tighty whities the other day, and I love them!’ David told Celebuzz.

‘They’re comfortable. I think they feel great, especially when you’re playing soccer, as well. It’s [comfortable]. But I wear boxers as well.’
