Even years after hanging up his boots, David Beckham remains one of football's most relevant figures and it was recently reported that the Manchester United legend secured an ±R468m documentary deal with Netflix.
As far as being a marketable footballer is concerned, many players look up to Beckham as being one of the game’s most famous personalities.
While having a largely successful playing career, Beckham’s off-field ventures meant that he became a famous celebrity beyond the pitch, during and after his tenure as a baller.
The Beckham brand has seen him delve in the world of fashion and modelling, while he even landed a couple of acting gigs here and there.
