Former England soccer captain David Beckham was banned from driving for six months on Thursday after admitting using his mobile phone while driving, the BBC reported.
Beckham, who played for Manchester United and Real Madrid, admitted using his mobile phone as he drove his Bentley through central London in November last year, the BBC said.
The 44-year-old was sentenced in Bromley Magistrates Court, it added.
Famous for his devastating free-kicks, he captained England 59 times and scored in three World Cups before retiring from international duty in 2009.

He is married to Victoria Beckham, the former Spice Girl turned luxury fashion designer.
