David Beckham Stars In 50s-Style Photo Shoot For Men's Health

These pictures brightened up our inbox this morning, so we couldn't not share them with you. Behold: Men's Health magazine. (And you know us, any excuse to write about/stare at DB.)

The black and white photos see Becks in just a plain white t-shirt, pulling off a series of downright attractive poses - complete with tattooed arms and gravity-defying Rockabilly quiff.

In the accompanying interview, the footballer-turned-wordwide-brand discuses his young dream of playing football professionally, and how he "never wanted to be famous."

And good news for those of you fond of seeing Becks in his shorts on the pitch, because: "Right now I'm not even thinking about retiring," he says.

Well, that's a relief.
