Follow David Beckham’s Dubai footsteps
Diehard David Beckham fans may have been lucky enough to catch the football star at the opening of the new adidas shop in Mall of the Emirates on Tuesday. Goldenballs arrived early (almost unheard of for A-listers) to chat to fans and sign autographs outside the flagship store, before spending time with the Instagram competition winners.
Despite the hysteria surrounding his visit, not everybody was clued up on brand Beckham. After his adidas appearance, he went to regular celeb haunt Nobu for sushi, where he was unrecognised by diners and hotel guests.
Beckham said of his time in Dubai: "I always love coming to Dubai - it’s a special place that’s constantly evolving, just like adidas and their stores. Spending some time here today, it was great to get a sense of the energy people have for sport. In Dubai I’ve met people from all around the world who are united in their passion for sport."
And after the quick pit stop, he’s gone. Posting this picture on Instagram to finish his trip, along with the caption: “This is what happens when 3 queens get on the global express and think they are king Freddie#beenawaytoolong .. Long trip London , Nyc , Miami , Nyc , London , Dubai , London ... Can't wait to get home to see my beautiful wife and unbelievable children....”
