London, Nov 24 (ANI): For the first time, soccer ace David Beckham has been pictured with an asthma inhaler during LA Galaxy's MLS final defeat against Real Salt Lake City.
The footballer has secretly suffered the condition for years and has never been seen with his puffer.
But Goldenboots let his guard down during the recent match where he was spotted with his inhaler.
The England ace said his asthma is "mild" and has never hindered his career.
He even forced himself to play the final with a bruised ankle bone and needed pain-killing injections.
"I said I would be back with LA Galaxy after hopefully the World Cup and that's not going to change. It is the end of the season and I have to just try and rest it," the Daily Star quoted Becks as saying.
His spokesman added: "David has had a mild form of asthma for years. It's not in any way severe." (ANI)
