David Beckham usually gives off a very calm, cool and collected exterior – but all that changed after he came face to face with his idols on Thursday night. The former footballer freaked out after meeting music legends Fleetwood Mac following their gig in San Francisco, particularly singer Stevie Nicks. Sharing an assortment of photos from his evening with pal Dave Gardner, Becks delightedly announced on Instagram that he was the lucky recipient of a cuddle from the one and only Stevie.

"What a night in San Fran seeing Fleetwood Mac. Stevie Nicks," he penned, alongside an image of the pair in a sweet embrace. He shared the same photo on his Instagram Stories, and excitedly wrote: "OH MY GOD. Stevie Nicks gave me a cuddle," followed by a giant heart emoji. David looked thrilled in all the images which saw him pose with Stevie, Mick Fleetwood and keyboardist Christine McVie.
