David Beckham hints at football comeback

By Robert Dex

David Beckham has hinted he might come out of retirement and start playing football again.

The former England captain, who retired last year after a short stint playing in France, admitted he had "a tough time" after calling a halt to his career.

Appearing on BBC documentary David Beckham: Into The Unknown, he said he had gone through "a stage of enjoying the rest" but was now tempted to go back.

He said: "Now I go to watch a basketball game and, when you are watching athletes play at the top of their game, for me it gives me that itch again and I want to be back in the game then and I start thinking to myself, 'Could I play again? Could I go back?'

"Could I come out of retirement and start playing again?"
