David Beckham looks cool as he takes his beloved motorcycle for a spin on the streets of Los Angeles

David Beckham looks cool as he takes his beloved motorcycle for a spin on the streets of Los Angeles

David Beckham was spotted riding his motorcycle in Los Angeles as he faces a driving ban in Britain for using his phone at the wheel.

The former England captain donned a helmet and sunglasses as he joined friends in a ride around Malibu on Thursday.

The 43-year-old football legend cut a casual figure while enjoying the sunshine - as he insists he will attend court in London next month to face charges.

He looked every inch the biker with a black leather gilet as he took one of his beloved motorcycles out for a spin on the picturesque streets.

Wearing a navy shirt, the father-of-four also opted for tan chinos and brown shoes.

Hanging his baseball cap from the bike, the former Manchester United player paused for a moment on his vintage motorcycle before zooming off again.

It comes as the former footballer could face a driving ban after admitting using his phone while driving in London.

The former England captain will appear at Bromley Magistrates' Court next month to learn what punishment he faces after being caught on his mobile in a £100,000 Bentley in central London last November.

The father-of-four pleaded guilty to the charge by post and was set to be dealt with at Lavender Hill Magistrates' Court this morning.

MailOnline understands the hearing was moved after Beckham, who is currently in the US, confirmed he would attend his sentencing to accept responsibility for the incident.

According to the charge the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star was spotted driving his 2018 Bentley while using his phone in Great Portland Street on November 21.

Beckham previously avoided a speeding prosecution for driving a loaned Bentley at 59mph in a 40mph zone in west London two months earlier.

Celebrity lawyer Nick Freeman argued a notice of intended prosecution (NIP) was not received until one day after the statutory 14-day limit.

The technicality meant he did not face any further action. He did not attend that hearing at Wimbledon Magistrates' Court and opted for it to be heard in his absence.

Beckham was accused of 'shirking his responsibility' as a role model to young people and other footballers after avoiding prosecution.

There was outrage among lawyers and road safety campaigners and Joshua Harris, director of campaigns for Brake, said was 'hugely disappointing' to see the role model 'getting off a speeding prosecution on a mere technicality'.

Mr Freeman also assisted Beckham to overturn an eight-month driving ban in 1999 after arguing that the footballer was trying to escape a paparazzi photographer.
