When David Beckham appears for AC Milan in Dubai he will be surrounded by the biggest security operation ever undertaken by the state.
'We are determined to protect Mister Beckham,' said a Dubai security chappie. 'We will not tolerate bombings, shoe throwing incidents, hijackings or piracy of any description. And snipers better think twice as well let me tell you.'
It was revealed yesterday that a terror group who intended to pelt the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star with cream cakes were infiltrated and arrested following a potentially nasty incident with a box of cream horns.
David Beckham was reportedly unfazed by the possibilty of terrorist threats as he struggled to tie his shoe laces.
Posh was out shopping.
More as we get it.
