Legendary footballer David Beckham and his wife Victoria are said to have been infected with the COVID-19 virus after partying in Los Angeles, California in March.
David, who is 45 years old, and his wife who is 46 years old, are also reported to be worried if they are ‘super-spreaders’ and might spread the virus to many people.
On March 1, the Beckhams was in Miami to support David’s new club Inter Miami.
“They attended a couple of swanky networking events as David had promotional duties, and were shaking hands and kissing fans and various club dignitaries. They then flew back to London, and were whisked straight to their Cotswolds mansion,” said a source in The Sun UK.
On March 6, the couple returned home to celebrate the 21st birthday of their eldest son Brooklyn before returning to Miami where they began experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
“It was an absolute nightmare scenario,” the source continued.
“David started to feel ill and then Victoria developed a sore throat and high temperature. At the same time, several of their team including drivers, bodyguards, and assistants fell ill—a couple of them very badly so. Victoria really panicked and made the whole family quarantine rigidly for more than two weeks. She was utterly petrified they might be super-spreaders and did all she could to minimize all future risk. Not only was she poorly in bed, but she was also completely panicked. It was a rough few weeks,” said the source.
It is reported that both David and Victoria have done their best during the pandemic to help others such as sending “care packages” to at least two severely affected staff.
They also spent their entire summer at their home and even declined several party invites. After making full recovery, they got a swab and antibody test before jetting off to Greece and Italy for a vacation.
