    Brew It Like Beckham: Star Surprises Paramedic

    (© Other 010216) David Beckham with paramedic after stopping to help in central London


    A paramedic and her elderly patient got a shock and a very pleasant surprise when David Beckham brought them hot drinks as they waited for an ambulance.

    Catherine Maynard, who works with London Ambulance Service's Cycle Response Unit, was helping a pensioner who had fallen near Endsleigh Street in central London.

    The senior paramedic said: "I was waiting with my patient … to transfer him to hospital, and although I was keeping him warm it was very cold outside.

    "All of a sudden, I looked up and saw someone who looked like David Beckham walking past us. He said hello and got in his car. I said to the man I was treating, 'I think that was David Beckham.’

    Ten minutes later, he came back with a cup of coffee for me and a tea for the patient.

    "We were both very amused, and flattered. It was awful cycling around in the cold today and I couldn't believe it when he came back with some hot drinks."

    Ms Maynard has not always been so well supported in the past.

    A year ago, she and a crewmate were assaulted by two separate patients within a couple of days.

    But after posing for a picture with one of the world’s most famous footballers, she said: “I was so chuffed."

    London Ambulance Service said Beckham had shown that he "respects the service's hard-working paramedics and even a gesture as small as buying a cup of coffee makes our crews feel appreciated."

    This doesn't surprise me. My other half was working on a children's ward when Becks made an unpublicised visit and he said that he was really great with the kids - really getting involved, playing with them and making sure that he spent plenty of time with each one.

    It's nice when you get to hear stories about celebs who are actually decent people in their everyday life! Nice change from hearing about celeb entitlement!

    It's a cute story. I'd kinda like to know how he managed to park (twice) in London but I guess he was being driven around.

    I can't believe that buying a hot drink merits a whole thread.

    Shame about his high pitched voice.
