Beckham dismisses reports of affair
David Beckham rebutted Sunday a British tabloid newspaper report that he had had an affair with his personal assistant in Madrid.
The News of the World alleged Beckham had an affair with 26-year-old Rebecca Loos, the daughter of a Dutch diplomat, because his wife Victoria Adams had refused to move permanently to the Spanish capital where he plays for Real Madrid.
In a statement issued via his agent, the England football captain said the allegations were "ludicrous" and added he had a "wonderful wife and two very special kids".
The statement said: "During the past few months I have become accustomed to reading more and more ludicrous stories about my private life.
"What appeared this morning is just one further example.
"The simple truth is that I am very happily married, have a wonderful wife and two very special kids.
"There is nothing that any third party can do to change these facts."
Beckham could yet take legal action against the News of the World.
The former Manchester United midfielder married Adams when she was a member of the pop group the Spice Girls.
