David Beckham's parents have divided up a collection of Becks memorabilia worth tens of thousands of pounds as part of their divorce settlement.

The "shrine", set up by dad Ted to honour his footballer son, is now split between the couple's former home in East London, and Sandra's nearby flat.

With their 32-year marriage now history, Becks' parents spent hours combing through the valuable football souvenirs, with mum Sandra eventually leaving the house with three bags full of items, including a signed Manchester United shirt, as well as multiple photo albums and match programmes.

Fifty-three-year-old Ted told British newspaper The Sun that some of "the most valuable" memorabilia – including the England shirt the athlete wore when he scored against Argentina in the last World Cup – had been returned to David.

A lawyer oversaw the division of the property, ensuring that it was split evenly between the estranged pair. "I don't think it is right that Sandra gets half the stuff, as I had collected it," he said.
