David Beckham is magazine first solo male cover star

The footballer will be the first man to appear on the cover of ELLE magazine

Beckham will grace the July issue cover which will be a nod to the Olympics.

'ELLE is a prestigious magazine with international recognition' said David of the shoot 'I'm honoured to have been asked to be the first ever solo male fashion cover.'

The star was chosen because of his appeal to both men and women, his athletic credentials and for being a huge global icon. 

Other men have appeared on the cover of ELLE, but they were not posing alone.
Ewan McGregor appeared with 'Down With Love' co-star Renee Zellweger whilst Liam Gallagher graced the front cover of the magazine with partner Nicole Appleton in 2001.
