It was one of the biggest non-football-related World Cup-related sagas we can remember in years.
Last month, Joe Lycett threatened to shred £10,000 of his own money if David Beckham did not renounce his association with the Qatar World Cup - as the Middle Eastern country has a shocking record for LGBTQ+ rights, human rights and worker's rights.
Beckham, as you may be aware, stands to earn a huge sum - some reports suggest up to £150 million - for his deal as an ambassador for Qatari football.
When Beckham failed to respond within the allotted timeframe, Lycett went through with his threat, although it was later revealed that they money shredded was not real and he had donated the cash to LGBTQ+ charities.
In the latest development, however, the comedian says that he HAS had a response from Beckham, in the form of an 'exclusive statement' from his team, and it will be revealed on his 'Got Your Back' special on Channel 4 at 9pm.
"As far as we are aware this is the only statement he or his team have given to any outlet regarding his involvement in Qatar. I have been advised that legally I cannot give my opinion on it, so you’ll have to make up your own minds," he wrote.
"We also speak to some LGBTQ+ football teams and Dr Nasser Mohamed, the first openly gay Qatari, who Beckham blocked on Instagram. We also reunite some of the cast of Footballers’ Wives lol."
I’d like to thank the Got Your Back team and the team at Channel 4 for their extraordinary hard work on this project. Here’s a trailer. (4/4) pic.twitter.com/NDd27wQCst

Another hoax from Lycettt, a clever marketing ploy or some closure for him? Either way, we'll be tuning in.
