Divided Loyalties

David Beckham has hit the headlines again, how surprising!

This time, his "fifteen minutes of fame" is down to him withdrawing from the Madrid team photo to promote their bid to host the 2012 Olympics.

Beckham, a very shrewd and intelligent individual, realised that a photo of him appearing in front of a banner backing Madrid's bid would look a trifle disloyal to his fellow Brits.

Having discussed it with his agent, he pulled out; needless to say his chums in Madrid were not best pleased.

It seems that Madrid 2012 signed a deal with Real Madrid, stating that all the Real Madrid players would promote the city's bid for the 2012 Games.

Beckham now has to deal with the problem of what he will be wearing on the pitch.

His new shirts will feature a logo supporting the Madrid bid.

Even Tony Blair might have trouble worming his way out of that.
