Looks like David Beckham will have to watch the Olympics on TV in his mansion instead of running around furiously in the blazing heat. (Wait — that's supposed to be a bad thing, we think.) The hunky Mr. Posh Spice learned today that he did not qualify for England's 18-man Olympic soccer squad. Sounds like he's been kicked to the curb.
David and his abs of steel had qualified for the 35-man cut, but he was let go when the final cuts were made today, as the coach was apparently hoping to focus more on defensive players.
David, 37, issued a statement, saying, "Naturally I am very disappointed, but there will be no bigger supporter of the team than me." At least he's got a gold-medal attitude.
