London: Romeo Beckham was pictured grabbing a girl by the throat and raising his fist to her on Sunday.

However, the actions of the nine-year-old son of David and Victoria Beckham had an innocent explanation as - he was merely recreating a fight that occurred during an ice hockey game, t5he Daily Mail reported.

Though he appeared to be in throes of a vicious attack, it was simply a bit of fun as the expression on the lady’s face suggests.

The fun-loving youngster was joined by his brothers Brooklyn and Cruz as they watched their footballer father join LA Galaxy in a game against the Portland Timbers.

But while his father played football on the pitch in from of him, Romeo was also keeping up to date on the goings-on on the ice, as the Los Angeles Kings played the Vancouver Canucks.

Wearing a bright blue Adidas tracksuit top with red gloves that were emblazoned with the Arsenal F.C. logo, Romeo clutched the girls neck with his left hand and pulled back his right in a faux threat to punch her.

The pretty teenager was just as humorous and pulled a funny face at Romeo before grabbing his cheek and giving them an affectionate squeeze.

Rather than join in, Brooklyn and Cruz appeared oblivious at times to what was going on.

Cruz kept quiet by tucking into a hotdog as he watched the game, while the eldest of them filmed the match on his iPhone.

Brooklyn continued the theme of dressing bright by wearing a yellow hoody which he teamed with a black cap, while Cruz looked cute in blue T-shirt and dark blue hoody.
