London: David Beckham has rubbished rumours that he used a bottom double for his H and M underwear ads.
The footie ace said live on Grande Journal on Canal Plus that the crotch and the backside in the commercial is his, the Mirror reported.
Speculation that he had drafted in a bum double were sparked while he was filming a recent advertisement for the underwear company.
The Guy Ritchie -directed ad sees the 37-year-old legendary footballer sprinting, vaulting over hedges and running through a tennis court - wearing just a pair of H and M boxer shorts.
But in one shot, the tattoos on his right arm seem to disappear, and his shoulders become broader.
And in a promotional still, a bare-chested lookalike can be seen lurking behind him as he relaxes between takes.
