London: British comedian Russell Brand decided to seek advice from footballer David Beckham regarding pain in his back.
Brand, 37, crossed paths with Beckham at the Olympic closing ceremony rehearsals in the old Ford plant in Dagenham, London.
"I was speaking to David Beckham, who was there with his lovely wife Victoria, and I was asking him about pain relief for a bad back," a website has quoted Brand as saying.
"I`ve got this pain in my lower back and I asked him if he had one of those injections for the pain when he was playing. He said all I needed was a massage, but he wasn`t exactly offering," he added.
