Ex-England football captain David Beckham has been accused of using his work for charity as part of a campaign to win a knighthood after emails between himself and his PR advisor were hacked by Football Leaks, via European media.

Emails between the two also suggest that Beckham’s appearance on the Jonathan Ross Show, where Ross opined that Beckham should get a knighthood, was staged with the agreement of Ross. And also revealed is that the reason Beckham was passed over for his expected knighthood was his participation in aggressive tax avoidance schemes, similar to those profitable for fellow footballer Gary Lineker.
