Beckham Greatest Pop Culture Icon Of All Time

Soccer star DAVID BECKHAM is a bigger popular culture icon than ELVIS PRESLEY and MARTIN LUTHER KING, according to a new poll.

The REAL MADRID player has come out top of a viewers vote conducted by the VH1 TV channel to find the greatest pop icon of all time - beating off competition from rock'n'roll king Elvis, who was third, legendary group THE BEATLES, who came fourth, and American superstar MADONNA, who was runner-up to Beckham.

Beckham says of the award, "I am really honoured that I have been voted number 1 in VH1's 100 Greatest Pop Culture Icons, especially when you look at the incredible list of people in this poll - many of whom I really admire."

Civil rights icon King came twelfth in the poll, one behind movie legend MARILYN MONROE, with late British royal DIANA, PRINCESS OF WALES completing the top five.

Beckham's wife VICTORIA only managed number 32 for her part in all-girl group SPICE GIRLS.
