London, June 27 : He might be giving hundreds of autographs when he steps out, but David Beckham still asks his sporting heroes for their signatures.
The 33-year-old footie idol admits that he still gets starstruck by boxer Muhammad Ali and basketball player Michael Jordan.
"The whole experience of wanting someone's autograph is something special, especially when you're a little kid and you have heroes whom you look up to," the Daily Express quoted him as saying
"I've been incredibly lucky - I've met so many great people like Ali and Jordan so that's quite a few autographs I've got that I'm proud of.
"Also when I was young I got one of my heroes' autographs, Bryan Robson. So I was very lucky," he added.
