The former England midfielder was cheered on by Posh during the dad-race.

Retired footballer David Beckham, 43, showed he still has sporting prowess as he took part in the father's bean bag race at daughter Harper's sports day.

Victoria, 44, shared an Instagram story of Becks, dressed in a blue denim shirt and looking cool under pressure in dark sunglasses, as he balanced the bean bag on his head and wove his way down the field.

The father-of-four looked comfortable on his feet as he grinned at the challenge, receiving whoops and cheers from the spectators.

Posh and Becks, who have been plagued by divorce rumours in recent weeks, put on a united front for their 19th wedding anniversary by dining out a fancy restaurant and splashing a whopping £8,000 on a bottle of bubbly - after sports day duties had been completed of course. 

Posh and Becks, who are parents to Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 15, Cruz, 13 and Harper, 6, will be celebrating their only daughter's seventh birthday next week by reportedly treating her to a £7,000 pony.

The youngster, who is horse-mad, has been told by her showbiz parents that she must look after her new pet after the family recently invested in a lavish new home in the Cotswolds, complete with riding stables.

Last year, little Harper was the envy of every other six year old girl as she dined with Princess Eugenie at a princess-themed tea party - in Buckingham Palace, no less.
