THE RETIRED footballer David Beckham is set to go on trial after allegedly exceeding the speed limit earlier this year.
According to the listing at Lavender Hill Court in London, the former Manchester United midfielder is suspected of travelling at 59mph in a 40mph zone, on the A40 near Paddington on January 23 this year.
It’s reported that Beckham was driving one of his recent vehicle acquisitions: a luxurious Bentley Bentayga SUV.
The hearing this week was only administrative one, according to The Times, with Beckham said to have pleaded not guilty.
A further case management hearing for the trial is set to take place next week, on September 4.
