David Beckham pelted with beer can

David Beckham slammed supporters at a soccer match in Canada on Wednesday (07Mar12) when a member of the crowd threw a beer can at him.

The British sportsman was in Ontario with his Los Angeles Galaxy teammates for a match against Toronto FC but the game was marred when a rival fan hurled the missile.


Beckham, who was waiting to take a corner kick when the incident happened, was seen picking up the empty can and shaking it at the crowd.


After the match, which ended in a 2-2 draw, he slammed the person responsible for the incident, saying, "Tonight was a great atmosphere. The majority were here to enjoy the spectacle. It's a shame some people spoiled it. It's disappointing kids see it... but it was a great atmosphere."
