Beckham achieved the impossible by making Wimbledon cool for a few fleeting moments.

David Beckham is a pretty cool guy, and he’s probably the only man that your girlfriend, sister and mother all agree that they fancy. He’s like the default character in a video game that lets you choose your character’s appearance: handsome and inoffensive.

Being a pretty cool guy, Beckham successfully managed to do a pretty cool thing whilst watching a match at Wimbledon. During a doubles contest a rogue ball flew into the crowd, only to be plucked out of the air by the former England international. It’s not exactly earth-shattering news, but for anyone who woke up today asking themselves “is David Beckham still cool?” then this video will help inform them that yes, he is.

Pretty impressive, no?

But when we’ve all stopped marveling at Beckham, we should take a moment to consider how shitty it must feel to be one of the tennis players involved in this match, knowing that their performance is going to be overshadowed by a retire footballer catching a ball. All that hard work and training, and the only reason you make it only a highlight reel is because this big shot in a suit managed to catch a ball while you’re running around sweating your testes off. 

I bet they don’t think Beckham’s cool. I bet they think that Beckham sucks.
