Soccer superstar David Beckham buys hot drinks for medic and patient

Beckham treated a London bike paramedic and her patient to coffee and tea as they waited for an ambulance

Paramedic Catherine Maynard was called to an elderly man who had fallen in the street when she spotted David Beckham, the former Manchester United, England and LA Galaxy midfielder.

I was waiting with my patient for an ambulance to transfer him to hospital and although I was keeping him warm it was very cold outside,

Maynard, who works for the London Ambulance Service Cycle Response Unit, said.

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 — I was so chuffed.

Beckham then posed for a picture with Maynard, which was tweeted from the official London Ambulance Service Twitter account.

The LAS also took to Twitter to ask others inspired by Beckham to show their support for medics with the hashtag #BuyItLikeBeckham.
