Berlin: Former football player David Bechkam has been named the most Stylish Man of the Year at an award ceremony.

Jose RedondoVega, editor-in-chief of GQ Germany, praised Beckham at the function.
"Like no other athlete, David Beckham represents style and fashion influence. With his trendsetting and sometimes daring appearances he has created a bridge between the world of design, models, and photographers, and the world of world-class sports, and brought glamour back to a male sport," RedondoVega said.
