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?"
