adidas forest hills David Beckham wears man bun at Adidas event in Shanghai

Over the years, his sporting prowess has often taken a back seat to his ever changing hairstyles, from buzz cuts to flowing manes.

And David Beckham, 42, was back to sporting one of his most notable recent hairdos a slick man bun when he stepped out at a promotional event to launch the Adidas Predator football boots in Shanghai on Monday.

The former Manchester United player’s outing in the bustling Chinese city came after he and his son Arsenal supporting son Romeo cheered on opposing teams in a Saturday showdown that saw the sportsman’s squad walk away the victors.

To mark the occasion, David took to Instagram to share a snapshot of himself and Romeo sitting side by side in armchairs, as he scrawled ‘United’ and ‘Arsenal’ over each person.

‘Game ready. Come on United,’ the star wrote, as he waited for the highly anticipated game between the two fierce Premier League rivals to kick off.

Their support of rival teams may not be the biggest surprise, as Romeo’s big brother Brooklyn famously trained with the Arsenal academy before he was released in 2015.

Money raised at the event is spent on a range of unique football based health education programmes in areas of the world severely affected by AIDS.

Last year the event, which was held at Marylebone One, raised over 800,000 and featured a question and answers session with ex United boss Ferguson.

World AIDS Day has been held on December 1 every year since 1988 and is dedicated to raising awareness of the deadly disease.
