A spokesperson for David Beckham has described leaked emails, information from which has been published by the Sun and a number of other outlets, as misleading.

The website Football Leaks released documents going back to 2013 which it claims came from Beckham. Previously, Football Leaks has released information regarding player contracts and transfer fees.

The emails show Beckham allegedly making derogotary remarks about the honours committee, a group which recommends who should receive honours such as knighthoods and MBEs. He was apprently furious about not receiving a knighthood.

It is also claimed that Beckham attempted to use his charity work with UNICEF to manoeuvre himself into a position to receive a knighthood.

Those are all allegations which were strenuously denied by Beckham's spokesperson who said the emails were 'doctored' and gave a 'deliberately innacurate picture'.

This story is based on outdated material taken out of context from hacked and doctored private emails from a third party server and gives a deliberately inaccurate picture.

David Beckham and UNICEF have had a powerful partnership in support of children for over 15 years. The David Beckham 7 Fund specifically has raised millions of pounds and helped millions of vulnerable children around the world. David Beckham has given significant time and energy and has made personal financial donations to the 7 Fund and this commitment will continue long term.

Before establishing the 7 Fund, David had supported UNICEF and a number of other charities over many years, including donating his entire earnings from PSG during his time playing there.

David and UNICEF are rightly proud of what they have and will continue to achieve together and are happy to let the facts speak for themselves.
