David Beckham left out of Team GB

David Beckham has revealed his sadness at not getting picked for the Olympic Team GB football team.

Gary Lineker, James Cordon, and Ronan Keating were among the voices on Twitter who expressed their disappointment and Becks' exclusion from the squad.

The squad is allowed three players over the age of 23 and it was thought that Beckham, the most capped England player of all time, would be given the nod.

'Terrible shame for Beckham having given so much to the Olympic bid and football,' tweeted Gary Lineker, who represented England 80 times, scoring 48 goals.

'Everyone knows how much playing for my country has always meant to me,' explained LA Galaxy star David. 'So I would have been honoured to have been part of this unique Team GB squad.

'Naturally I am very disappointed, but there will be no bigger supporter of the team than me,' continued the soccer ace. 'And like everyone, I will be hoping they can win the gold.'

The 37-year-old superstar played a huge part securing the Games for the UK seven years ago.
