David Beckham and Tom Cruise spotted on catch-up in London pub

David Beckham and Tom Cruise were seen having a chilled drink together on Monday in a London pub.

The famous pair were seen in The Cow, in West London's trendy Notting Hill, sitting at a corner table and sharing a bottle of red wine while David also sipped on a pint of ale.

The long-time friends were watched by stunned onlookers, many of whom shared the sighting on social media site Twitter.

Tom and David looked relaxed and seemingly unaware of the excitment they were causing, with both dressed down in black T-shirts and jeans.

Fellow pub-goer Elizabeth Freid, who shared one of the snaps of the famous friends told HELLO! Online: "My boyfriend and his friend were in the Cow pub on Westbourne Park Road, Notting Hill. Tom Cruise and David Beckham where drinking red wine by themselves, no security, no entourage."

Elizabeth revealed that some patrons were hardly suble when snapping pictures of the pair, but the stars didn't appear to mind.

"Tom and David didn't pay any attention and continued talking," she added.

The former England footballer and the Hollywood actor have been friends since 2007 after meeting when David moved his family to Los Angeles. David recently confessed that the pair held regular movie nights while he was still living in the Californian city.

Tom was recently in London as part of a huge promotion for sci-fi thriller Edge of Tomorrow. Joined by co-star Emily Blunt, he attended premieres in London, Paris and New York in one day, and also revealed on the Graham Norton Show that he hopes to film the latest instalment of the Mission Impossible franchise in London.

David may have retired from football last year, but that didn't stop him from playing a prominent role in the build-up to the World Cup.
Having already made it to Brazil - the venue for this year's tournament - in his BBC documentary Into The Unknown, the 39-year-old star fronted a new TV advert which launched in the first ad break for the FIFA tournament.

It sees David vetting a series of new, top secret innovations in sports - including drone cameras over a cricket pitch and a suit that lets viewers experience the same physical impacts as a rugby player.

Ultimately he rejects each idea before unveiling the best new concept – Sky Sports 5, a channel launching in August, dedicated to European and International football.
