It is the kind of security measure usually reserved for senior politicians or royalty.
But David Beckham appears to have hired an armed bodyguard to protect his family as they hit the beach in California.
The 36-year-old footballer, who has four children – Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, eight, Cruz, six, and baby Harper Seven – with wife Victoria, was spotted next to a minder wearing a holstered pistol.
The man was thought to be an off-duty police officer employed on a freelance basis by Beckham while he enjoyed a day out with his sons on Malibu Beach in Los Angeles.
