Beckham: Keeping fit is really important as playing football is all I’ve ever wanted to do. I’m training a lot at the moment so fitness is an integral part of my day. I think I’d find it more of a challenge if I wasn’t able to keep in shape!

AP: New York Fashion Week starts Thursday, and you are often at your wife’s shows. (His wife, Victoria, is a former Spice Girl turned fashion designer.) What’s it like for you in the front row?

Beckham: Victoria works so hard on her collections, it’s just nice to be able to go to the shows and see all that hard work come to life. I’m really proud of her, she gets nervous but it’s always a great success.
