Sven's girlfriend says Victoria Beckham was too thin

Nancy Dell’Olio has spoken out about Victoria Beckham’s figure.

The long-time partner of ex-England manager Sven Goran Ericksson says that during the summer, she was worried about Posh, 32.

‘Victoria looked a bit too thin for my liking at the World Cup – and I told her so,’ she says. ‘For someone who usually looks so good, it was worrying to see her looking so thin.

‘Perhaps it was the stress of the World Cup – we all went through it.’

But now the football competition is over, Nancy tells First magazine that the ex-Spice Girl has put a bit of weight back on and looks better.

‘She’s someone who remains an inspiration to many,’ say the Italian lawyer, ‘and that’s another reason for her to maintain a healthy weight.’
