Argentina's number one sports pin-up has blasted David Beckham for being "ridiculous."

Polo superstar ADOLFO CAMBIASO and his former model wife Maria are considered Argentina's answer to Britain's Beckhams, VICTORIA and David - except they shun the limelight and the fame.

Hunky Cambiaso, a pin-up in South America, admits he hates interviews and photo sessions - and watches his soccer counterpart make a fool of himself.

The polo pin-up says, "I don't do interviews and photos because it doesn't help me - that isn't how polo works.

"It isn't like soccer, where the more Beckham appears in the newspapers the more money he gets paid. Polo is small outside Argentina, but at least you don't have to act ridiculous."
