Like father, like son! David Beckham's youngest son Cruz, 13, appears to be following in his dad's footsteps as he joined him for a gym session in Los Angeles on Tuesday. The teenager made his way through a series of challenging exercises alongside his dad, including battle ropes, sit ups and pushing a weight sled across the gym floor.

David shared a glimpse at their workout on Instagram Stories, revealing they were being put through their paces by celebrity personal trainer Chase Weber, who also posted videos from the session on social media. In one clip, Cruz can be seen looking scared as he holds onto the sled as his dad pushes it from one side of the gym to the other.

The talented teenager appears to enjoy working out alongside his dad and older brothers Brooklyn, 19, and Romeo, 16. However, he has previously sparked concern from fans who have said he is too young to be doing such challenging strength workouts. "Too young to lift, it isn't good for the backbone and growth," one concerned follower commented on one of Cruz's Instagram videos in summer 2017. "You are way too young for this," another wrote.
