The ex-footballer had to explain himself to the Italian representatives of the law for almost an hour.

Last week, the Beckham family went on vacation to the resort town of Amalfi in Italy. According to the Daily Star, David was spotted talking to the police on the yacht. The 46-year-old former athlete talked for about 45 minutes with the police, who checked his documents.

As it turned out, Beckham’s children became the reason for such attention from the police. Cruise, 16, and Harper, 10, rode a jet ski. The footballer’s children were wearing yellow life jackets, but this precaution was not enough.

According to Italian law, they are both too young to ride unaccompanied. Only 18 years of age or older are allowed to operate a jet ski on their own.

But judging by what the witness told the press, the meeting of the football legend with the police ended peacefully. Before leaving, one of the police asked to take a selfie with David and banged his fist goodbye.
