Speaking to CNN on Tuesday night, the patron saint of football/soccer (depending on whether you're right or just plain wrong) admitted, "I'm excited to be part of such a huge occasion for our country." Asked if a flame had a part to play in his part to play, Becks added: "I think I might have one aboard.".
But what exactly does that cryptic answer mean? Will David be involved in the opening ceremony's equivalent of a money-shot and light the Olympic cauldron? By the way, we love the fact that there's such a thing as an Olympic cauldron. Between Olympics, they probably store it with the Olympic broomstick and Olympic eye-of-newt and toe-of-frog.
Anyway, back to our in-depth analysis of Beckham's "part". Maybe he's simply landed one of the 1,000 Olympic jobs still up for grabs? Or, maybe, just maybe with the Spice Girls rumoured to be performing, Becks is going to join them onstage for a little zig-a-zig-ah? All will be revealed on Friday night.
By the way, most other news sites would have posted an Olympic-themed pic of Becks to accompany this story, but not us. We thought we'd treat you to a topless shot instead. Another reason why The Daily Slap is the perfect place to visit each day, to top up your news tan.
