David Beckham and his son Brooklyn were '”shaken” but unhurt following a car crash Saturday in the U.K. Former Manchester United and England captain Beckham, 39 and his son were leaving the training ground of Premier League team Arsenal when Beckham's Audi crashed into a Mitsubishi Colt, the BBC reported.
An source close to Beckham told the Telegraph: “They were shaken. It was quite a heavy prang [crash] at quite a speed, but everybody walked away uninjured. Everybody’s fine. Thankfully the car’s airbags deployed.”
Brooklyn Beckham, 15, plays for Arsenal's under-15 team, and had just played a match against Brighton & Hove Albion.
According to multiple media reports, two Brighton players who witnessed the aftermath of the crash tweeted about it. Sky News and Time both quoted Brighton player Archie Davis as posting, “Just seen David Beckham looks like he got in a car crash and hurt his shoulder."
Another Brighton player, Thomas Cadman, reportedly posted on the social networking site: "Weird to play against Brooklyn Beckham earlier. Even weirder to be currently stuck behind David Beckham as he has crashed his car."
Both accounts are still active, however, the tweets appear to have been deleted.
People magazine said it had reached out to Beckham's representatives for comment, but at the time of writing, had not received a response.
Beckham's two other sons, Romeo, 12, and Cruz, 9 also play for Arsenal's under 13s and under 10s teams, respectively.
Beckham, now retired from professional soccer, is still one of the highest-profile sports stars in the world. He earned $42 million in endorsements from companies including Adidas, Coty, H&M, Sainsbury's, Samsung and Breitling in 2013, according to Forbes.
