Arise Sir Becks - 5/2 to be knighted
After announcing his retirement from football, William Hill are offering 5/2 that David Beckham is knighted in the June Honours List this year.
He has also been cut by Britain's biggest bookmaker to win this year's BBC Sports Personality of the year from 33/1 to 10/1 after becoming the first Englishman to win a league title in four different countries (England, Spain, USA, France).
"There has been talk about Becks being knighted ever since he scored THAT goal against Greece and surely now the clamour will become all the more fervent given that he has finally hung up his boots," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. "Becks must be considered a contender for the SPOTY award at the end of the year."
Becks will obviously have some spare time on his hands and William Hill are betting on what he will do next in his life. He is 3/1 to own his own MLS franchise, while he is 33/1 to star in his own reality TV show. He is 100/1 to go to the jungle and appear in I'm A Celeb before the end of next year.
