Romeo Beckham caused a stir among his followers on Saturday when he shared a photo of his "awkward" wardrobe malfunction.

The 20-year-old, who is the son of David and Victoria Beckham, took to Instagram to reveal his wardrobe mishap, sharing an image of himself rocking a pair of jeans that had completely split open to reveal his dark underwear underneath.

Romeo was sitting on a bench with his legs slightly apart to show off the full extent of his torn grey jeans – and his facial expression perfectly summed up how he felt about his fashion blunder. 

The Brentford FC footballer looked unimpressed over the incident, and appropriately captioned his post: "Well that's awkward."

His fans were quick to respond, with many appearing to be amused by his embarrassment, commenting with laughing face emojis. 

One replied: "The facial expression is gold, can't stop laughing." A second said: "Be glad you have underwear on."

A third added: "At least you were wearing boxers... Could have been a lot worse." 

Like his dad, who is the former England captain, Romeo is a footballer and has been spending much more time in the UK after he joined Brentford's B team on loan from Inter Miami earlier this year. 

He announced his move to the Premier League team in January after he already spent a couple of months training with Brentford to maintain his fitness during the off-season in America. 

"I'm very proud and very happy to be here," he said. "It was a fun season [in the USA] and there were a lot of ups and downs but I'm excited to come here and see what I can do.

"I came here at the start to keep fit during the off-season. The chance then came to come on loan here and I've never been so excited." 

He added: "They [head coach Neil MacFarlane and assistant coach Sam Saunders] have helped me massively over the last couple of months and I'm excited to see what else they can help me with to really progress in football. 

"Brentford [are] a club on the rise very quickly. I'm very grateful to be here."
