London: David Beckham has reportedly been rejected for a knighthood.

The 38-year-old English former footballer, who was widely expected to be made a knight of the realm in recognition of his service to the nation, has been left out of the list of the New Year`s Honors list, the Mirror reported.

According to a UK publication, the husband of Victoria Beckham, who has been nicknamed Goldenballs, has been snubbed after a row among the officials in charge of the honors.

Over the last few years, Beckham has become a British sporting and fashion icon.

The New Year`s Honors will be officially announced soon.
