Footballer surprised by sketch show host

David Beckham looked bemused when an Italian presenter attempted to cup his Goldenballs.

Elena Di Cioccio was trying to find out if the LA Galaxy star is as well-endowed as he appears in his Emporio Armani Underwear ads.

The stunt was for a sketch on her TV show Le Iene (The Hyenas).

David, 34, was being interviewed outside a restaurant in Milan when Elena tried to cop a feel.

Becks stumbled back before his security led him away. 

Elena, who was wearing a yellow rubber glove, wasn’t impressed with her findings. 

‘I touched it but it’s small,’ she joked. ‘David, you have conned us all. What did you use, cotton wool? It’s all a trick.’

A spokesman for David added: ‘We have no issue with it, it did surprise him at the time, but David saw it for what it was – harmless fun.

‘She didn’t actually grab it, it was an attempt. She just got his trouser leg.’
