Doesn't he look amazing despite being "lucky to be alive" after a car crash over the weekend. Not that the press are one to exaggerate events, or anything.

The retired soccer star was collecting 15-year-old Brooklyn from Arsenal's training ground in London on Saturday (29.11.14) when a woman crashed her Mitsubishi into his Audi, and the pair of them are said to have had a lucky escape. And, before you start going "Pppppfft, women drivers", it doesn't appear to be entirely her fault.

A witness revealed: "Beckham and Brooklyn are lucky to be alive. Beckham took the hit on the driver's side - it could have been a completely different story."

The 39-year-old hunk - who also has sons Romeo, 12, and Cruz, nine, and three-year-old daughter Harper with Victoria - was "massively apologetic" following the collision and is said to have given the female driver his jumper as she and her daughter waited for help.

David - who is reported to have hurt his shoulder in the accident - rushed to comfort the pair, who were later taken to hospital, after checking that Brooklyn was okay.

A source told The Sun: "Beckham was turning right and mustn't have seen the other car, or realised how fast it was travelling. She smacked into the side of him. It's a miracle no one was seriously hurt. Beckham was massively apologetic."

And, as you can see, the former England captain recovered in time to escort Victoria to the Evening Standard Theatre Awards last night. Although he didn't seem too keen to hang around the red carpet much...

Those also sashaying up the red carpet include Kim Cattrall in full Samantha mode, Sienna Miller, Benedict Cumberbatch and the fiance, Suki Waterhouse, Natalie Imbruglia, Naomi Campbell, Anna Kendrick, and generally a load of sultry looking sorts in bold floral/embossed prints.
