Cape Town - Former England soccer star David Beckham would make a "great" James Bond, according to his wife Victoria.

According to the Daily Mail website, Beckham - who retired from football at the aged of 38 last month - has no acting experience, but has been tipped by Posh to swap his famed No 7 jersey for the 007 role.

In a joint interview with The Sun, Beckham said: "I have some friends who are actors - Tom Cruise is a very good friend of ours. But I don’t think I have any plans to become an actor. I’m not sure I’d be very good at it."

But Victoria interjected, saying: "I think you would be really good at acting. I think you’d be great. I think he should be James Bond! He’d be a good James Bond!"

Beckham retired from football after finishing his career at French club Paris Saint-Germain and is rumoured to be looking at purchasing a MLB side.
