David Beckham continued his steady march to sainthood this week when he stopped to help an elderly lady who had collapsed in the street.

The ex-footballer was cruising not far from his west London mansion when he spotted the unidentified dear lying in the middle of the road during the evening rush hour.

Some other, not famous people had already spotted the incident and flagged down a passing fire engine when Becks joined in the rescue effort by blocking nearby traffic with his car, offering a bottle of water and presumably offering to take any free kicks if needed.

A spokesman for the London Fire Brigade confirmed the story to the Daily Mail, saying: "At around 16.45 a fire engine was flagged down to an elderly woman who had tripped when crossing the road and fell and hit her head.

"David Beckham was parked nearby and had already given her a bottle of water. He assisted and when the ambulance arrived was thanked and told he could move on."

This isn't the first time Golden Balls has been in the right place at the right time to come to the aid of a stranger – last year he was in the press for taking hot drinks to an old gentlemen who had fallen and the paramedic looking after him.

The London Ambulance tweeted: "Thank you David Beckham for buying a tea and coffee for Catherine and her patient #buyitlikebeckham" at the time.
