DAVID Beckham has paid tribute to his legions of online fans – as he reaches a mammoth 20MILLION “Likes” on Facebook.
The footie icon posted a snap of himself smiling, holding a piece of paper with the message: “Facebook 20 million. Thank you.”
And along with the snap, he said: “Just seen that we have reached 20 million, incredible…a special thank you to everyone.
“I have the best support out there.”
He is currently behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in terms of most popular athletes on Facebook.
But the LA Galaxy ace – who watched Team GB’s men’s football team play at Wembley at the weekend – is still some way from Facebook’s most popular celeb, Eminem.
The US rapper passed the 60million milestone on Monday, making him the most “Liked” star on the social networking site.
And close behind is We Found Love singer Rihanna, with an impressive 59,392,757.
But pop superstar Lady GaGa is way off the pace, with a comparatively tiny 53,012,646.
