David Beckham was spotted buying lunch and chatting to a homeless man while in Chelsea with his family.

The retired footballer reportedly handed the man a burger and a beer from Tommi's Burger Joint on King's Road and had a quick conversation before leaving with his three youngest children, Romeo, 13, Cruz, 11, and Harper, four.

The family had been enjoying lunch at the restaurant, with David ordering extra food to give to the man on his way out. A diner at the restaurant told The Sun: "David came out with the burger in his hand and the bottle of beer in his pocket.

"A lovely gesture." David was praised after buying a homeless man lunch

"When he handed the burger to the homeless man, the guy's face just lit up. It was such a lovely gesture."

This isn't the first time the 41-year-old has been spotted doing small good deeds around London, as he also gave hot drinks to paramedics who were outside while caring for an elderly man after a fall earlier this year. 

After having a photo with David, the London Ambulance service tweeted the photo, encouraging others to help out where they can with the hashtag '#buyitlikebeckham.' They wrote: "Thank you David Beckham for buying a tea and coffee for Catherine and her patient #buyitlikebeckham."

David bought paramedics coffee earlier this year

Paramedic Catherine Maynard revealed how delighted she was to see David doing his bit, saying: "All of a sudden, I looked up and saw someone who looked like David Beckham walking past us. He said hello and got in his car. I said to the man I was treating, 'I think that was David Beckham.' Ten minutes later, he came back with a cup of coffee for me and a tea for the patient.

"It was awful cycling around in the cold today and I couldn't believe it when he came back with some hot drinks - I was so chuffed."

The star recently enjoyed a trip to Mexico to attend Eva Longoria's glamorous wedding ceremony with his wife, Victoria. The couple, who are good friends with Eva and her new husband, Pepe Baston, played a big part in the wedding as Victoria reportedly designed Eva's stunning wedding dress.
