Footballer David Beckham has revealed that when he injured his Archilles tendon, he passed the time by building a 5,922 piece LEGO set!
“This is going to make me sound really weird but when I was in Milan with a lot of time on my hands I found online that there is a Taj Mahal LEGO set you can buy. So I bought it,” the father-of-three revealed in a live chat with Yahoo.
The LEGO Taj Mahal set kept the 35-year-old footballer occupied whilst he was recovering off the pitch and David admitted to thinking about becoming a professional LEGO brick builder! “I know it’s not a career but I love doing it and would like to be a professional LEGO builder,” he said.
Dad-of-three Becks also outed wife Victoria and his sons, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz, as massive fans of the colourful toy bricks, too. “They’re obsessed with it.”
If David loves the Taj Mahal set, he’ll love the new playground craze…
