New Delhi: Superstar footballer David Beckham is often considered as the ultimate sporting gent.
The suave and sophisticated Briton has left several fans utterly charmed during his playing career.
On Monday, the former Manchester United winger offered further proof of this, as he surprised a paramedic and her elderly patient with a thoughtful gesture.
Catherine Maynard of the London Ambulance Service’s Cycle Response Unit was treating an elderly patient who had fallen in central London.
Beckham, who was walking by, greeted them and got into his car. Few minutes later, he returned with some hot drinks for the duo.
“I was waiting with my patient … to transfer him to hospital, and although I was keeping him warm it was very cold outside,” Maynard told Sky News.

“All of a sudden, I looked up and saw someone who looked like David Beckham walking past us. He said hello and got in his car.
“I said to the man I was treating, ‘I think that was David Beckham.’
“Ten minutes later, he came back with a cup of coffee for me and a tea for the patient. “We were both very amused, and flattered. It was awful cycling around in the cold today and I couldn’t believe it when he came back with some hot drinks.”
Beckham has been the toast of social media ever since for his good samaritan act.
