Becks appeal

David Beckham last night won the Lifetime Achievement Awards for the BBC Sports Personality of the Year. Yes, cynics, we know what you're thinking - this has to be an obscene joke, what personality? But for one moment, lets cease the snark, and listen to what an emotional Becks said on receiving his award.

David sobbed, 'Of course, I want to thank my wife and my children. Not only has she given me three amazing boys but the support she's given me and she is truly and inspiration for me every single day. So Victoria, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz - thank you.'

'Football is a team game and without the teams and the players' support I have had over the years, I wouldn't be here today. I wouldn't be here without the skill and support of those players. I've been lucky enough to play with some of the great teams over the years. Playing for England has been one of the highlights and biggest things of my career. I've been able to play under some of the best coaches in my career and obviously for me the best manager in football who I regard as a father figure still after so many years of knowing him - Sir Alex Ferguson.'
