Beckham's Name Used By Condom Company
A Chinese firm is using soccer star David Beckham's name to promote its brand of condoms - without his permission. The firm is claiming men who use the Beckham contraceptive - which has become the best-selling in China - will score in bed like the L.A. Galaxy star does on the pitch. But fans in the country are calling for a ban on the condoms - because they don't want to offend the British sportsman. A fan explains, "We do not want Beckham to think the Chinese people are disrespecting him. We love him here." A spokesman for Beckham says, "It's not an official brand."
