David Beckham's gold-plated iPod touch

 Footballer David Beckham is affectionately known as golden balls – now he has a gold iPod touch to add to his collection.

Beckham played his centenary match on the England team against France last week. To celebrate his 100th match representing the country squad, his team clubbed together to buy him an iPod touch – with a difference – it’s gold plated.

The Daily Telegraph has the story, and this clearly shows the magic 32GB capacity printed on the back, meaning it’s a top-of-the range iPod touch the former England captain is sporting. Of course, it’s not clear if he’s going to use the device to keep track of football scores using wifi, but it is likely he’ll use the device to replay key moments from his matches recorded and passed along to him by England’s coaches and the popular Mac-only SportsCode application.
