Daily Mail London - He may have hung up his football boots more than a year ago. But it seems David Beckham’s earning power is still as strong as ever. The former England captain, 39, picked up a £7.5million windfall from his company in the past year.

Exploiting the image rights of ‘Brand Beckham’ earned the ex-midfielder the equivalent of £20,548 a day - ten times greater than the dividend picked up by wife Victoria, 40. The Spice Girl-turned-fashion designer paid herself £750,000 through her company Moody Productions, which channels earnings from her music back catalogue. But the pair still have a stratospheric joint worth of £210million - thanks to her fashion empire, which last year made a profit of £1.4million, and his lucrative promotional contracts with companies including Adidas, clothing chain H&M and Sky Sports.
