David Beckham and his teenage son Brooklyn escaped badly shaken from a car crash on Saturday in which they were spared serious injury by the deployment of the car’s airbags.
Beckham, 39, the former England captain, was picking up his 15-year-old son when his Audi was involved in a collision outside Arsenal’s training ground in Hertfordshire.
A source close to Beckham said: “They were shaken. It was quite a heavy prang at quite a speed but everybody walked away uninjured. Everybody’s fine. Thankfully the car’s airbags deployed.”
Brooklyn, who plays for Arsenal under-16s, had just finished a match against Brighton’s under-16s.
Thomas Cadman, who plays for Brighton under-16s, said on Twitter: “Weird to play against Brooklyn Beckham earlier. Even weirder to be currently stuck behind David Beckham as he has crashed his car.”
Archie Davies, a team-mate, said: “Just seen David Beckham looks like he got in a car crash and hurt his shoulder. Star struck by seeing David Beckham tbh.’
Brooklyn was signed by Arsenal on a short-term contract in November. His brother, Romeo, 12, and Cruz, nine, have also been playing for the club’s underage teams.
