David Beckham sent a box of around 50 pairs of boxers to Barack Obama after learning that the President and his wife Michelle are big fans of his underwear range.

The 37-year-old footie ace, who models the pants he designed himself, found out the Obamas were fans after meeting them in Washington earlier this year.

“David promised to send a box of his undies to the President, and Michelle has insisted that her husband wears them!” the Sun quoted a source close to the White House as saying.


Becks, whose briefs are part of a range made by H and M, is also a big hit with Obama’s daughters  Malia, 14, and Sasha, 11.

The girls are big fans of the dad of four and have signed posters of him on their walls.

Latest on Beckham
David Beckham has suggested he is not the right man to light the Olympic flame to officially open the London Games, saying the honour should go to an Olympian who has won gold medals.

Admitting his disappointment at failing to make Britain's Olympic soccer squad, Beckham took himself out of the running for one of the greatest honours that can be bestowed on a sportsman or woman but offered no hint as to who should have the job of lighting the cauldron on July 27.
