Sporty Personalities: Beckham, Fabregas & Walcott

Look how they’re all studiously avoiding a glimpse of his hair! It’s not just us, y’know…

Outside of the UK, it’s a little known fact that British people are prohibited from commencing their celebration of the festive period until the winner of the BBC Sports Personality of the Year has been announced.

Fortunately, the awards ceremony (featuring the cream of the country’s sporting talent) took place on Sunday evening, and the nation can breathe a sigh of relief . It’s time to indulge in any faintly amusing habits of wrestling over last minute gift ideas in Poundland and/or crashing into each others ill-equipped vehicles in two inches of snow.

Why on earth would this be of interest to a bunch of hormonal miscreants like us, you ask? Well, aside from the Sports Personality Award itself, a number of other awards are up for grabs at the ceremony. This year, a Mr David Beckham was in attendance with wife Victoria and sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz (top) to collect a Lifetime Achievement award, honouring his contribution to sport over the course of his career to date.

Great mate and 2009 Sports Personality Award winner Ryan Giggs (pictured with his award at last year’s ceremony, left) and Manchester United legend Bobby Charlton were on hand to celebrate with D-Becks, but it’s the semi-blub when thanking his wife and kidlings that we wuvved the most.

Also putting in a shift were Arsenal boys Cesc Fabregas and Theo Walcott (left). Cesc had a busy evening, first appearing onstage to discuss the Spanish NT’s achievements (above), then joining cricketer Andrew Flintoff to hand over the Sports Personality of the Year 2010 to jockey AP McCoy. Theo also had award giving; his role to look a bit lost while former boxer Joe Calzaghe presented golfer Colin Montgomerie with the ‘Coach of the Year’ award. (Image via ontd_football)

  4. @AgnesWonka says:

  5. CESC! AHHH! GORGEOUS!! I'm lost for words, and to hand over the main prize to an Arsenal fan, get you ;)

  6. Kelly says:

  7. Bella says:

    Hi, why was I deleted by the administrator? I put in a smiley face but is that not allowed anymore? I was so polite! My feelings are hurt…sniff.

  8. bri_saldana says:

    Wow…the Becks fam looks lovely!!!

  9. Rossanera says:

    I love Cesc's accent. Is it just me, or has his English improved by leaps and bounds? I adore him. Such a class act.

  10. maya says:

    I'm still so disgusted by the sight of Beckham's hair, I can't read anything properly.

  11. Kristine says:

    I hate that Victoria is always in a vogue pose. Its a family picture for crying out loud. Hug your kids!

    • chay says:

      i'm unsure why people gave you a negative. I think she is super hyper vogue-y as well. It would be nice to see a picture of her hugging her kids. Has anyone ever seen one?

  12. Anon says:

    What did McCoy say to Cesc at the end? I can't decipher the accent.

  13. Kleon says:

    OMG, never pay attention to Beckham kids, Romeo is a carboncopy of his father O.O

  14. Beth says:

    David's collar makes it look like his head was photoshopped onto the picture.

  15. alma says:

    It's a family photo and she still dosen't smile, typical Victoria.

  16. Angela says:

    aww football's most famous family D-Becks … Gotta love them… Cesc good looking like always…. who saw the twit pic he sent w/him & his one and only Carla … that was cute pic too… =) … CONGRATS 2 ALL THE WINNERS!!!!!

  17. Cesc you cescy beast!!! *faints*

  18. C16 says:

    Cruz Beckham… Cutie pie <3

  19. Leá says:

    What do you think are the chances that the Beckham family will adopt me? I just want to be part of that perfection. Cesc was incredibly lovely as usual. I never tire of seeing his gorgeous face.

  20. jellenp says:

    VB's body language in contrast to the rest of the family is very odd.

    • Deb Stimson says:

      oops… you've already gotten 2 thumbs down on this but I do say, I have to agree. Makes here look a bit "distant" in body language theory.

      • jellenp says:

        Thanks for the support! People are allowed to disagree, of course, I just think it's a strange posture, given that the family is in "celebratory" mode and all.

  21. beebe says:

    All you need on a tuesday is a little bit of Cesc, and your day is fulfilled!

  22. blake2108 says:

    It is an OUTRAGE that Gareth Bale wasn't even on the shortlist.

  23. LoseThatGirl says:

    Is Posh's neck about to collapse under the weight of her hair do? The forward tipping of said cranium is a bit worrisome. She's verging on OAP territory with that posture. As for hubby…. I'm not that bothered by the hair situ. It's not great but it's been worse. The kiddos are just adorable beyond words.

  24. Alex Samuel says:

    Beckham's speech was the cutest thing ever, the way he devoted it to Victoria! :') And Cesc. CESC. Cescy, Cescy, Cescy. He was the highlight of my night! And yes, I had to google AP McCoy. Personally, I think Jess Ennis should have won, but hey…
