Beckham: a career in pictures

England's best-known footballer David Beckham announced his retirement last Thursday after a career laden with trophies and glamour that had a worldwide impact that went way beyond football.

The 38-year-old Beckham was made skipper for the night as he bade a tearful Parisian farewell on Saturday, making his final appearance at the Parc des Princes for Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain before heading into retirement.

Beckham duly basked in the applause as the capital club coasted to a 3-1 win over relegated Brest capped with two goals from Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Beckham had a hand in the other Parisian goal, his corner finding Blaise Matuidi as the former Manchester United star signed off with an assist.

There followed a standing ovation for Beckham as Ancelotti withdrew him with 10 minutes remaining and the former Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan and LA Galaxy star, watched by wife Victoria and his parents, left the arena in tears to warm applause from his teammates, who each afforded him a hug.

Beckham earned 115 caps for England, a record for an outfield player, and won the Champions League, six Premier League titles and two FA Cups with Manchester United.

He also won league titles with Real Madrid in Spain, LA Galaxy in the United States and PSG in France, making a habit of moving on straight after achieving success.
