David Beckham and his son Romeo enjoyed some more quality time at the 2016 Aegon Tennis Championships at Queen's Club on Tuesday. The father-son duo sat in the player's box to watch a game on Centre Court, just two days after Romeo picked up some tennis tips at the club from world no. 2 Andy Murray.

A keen tennis player, Romeo appeared to be enjoying the afternoon out as he animatedly pointed at the game while talking to his dad. David looked dapper in a beige blazer and shirt, taking off his flat cap to unveil a new hairstyle, with his locks now closely cropped around the back and sides.

Although rain briefly caused a break in play the pair appeared in good spirits for their outing, which marked the second time they have visited Queen's Club in the last few days.

David has been very supportive of Romeo's decision to quit football to play tennis, and watched on proudly as the 13-year-old played alongside Scottish tennis star Andy on Sunday, showing off his impressive skills.

"Right now (tennis) is his sport," David told during their visit to The Queen's Club. "He gave up on football at the ripe old age of 13 and now he plays tennis four or five times a week. He enjoys himself. It's a great sport and it's a big privilege for him to be here today.

Romeo is a budding tennis player and has been described as "very talented"

"When you look at role models, you want them to be passionate about the sport and to play hard all the time. Andy is one of those players and is a great model for many kids around the world," he added.

Last year, tennis coach John Johnson said Romeo would be one to watch in the tennis world. "He has a lot of talent and very good hand-eye coordination," he told the Daily Star. "I'm going to have a meeting with his mother about it to reinforce that because I'm not sure his parents realise how good he is. "Romeo really loves tennis. He is really into it and very talented. Romeo has a natural swing and is very enthusiastic. He just loves it.

"He kept telling me and I could see how focused he was. He is very energetic, very quick and strong."
