David Beckham's income from personal sponsorship deals dropped by around 10 percent in the year the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star retired from football.

The 2013 accounts for the company that handles Beckham's personal endorsements, Footwork Productions, showed that revenue dropped to £14.8 million  from £16.5 million in 2012.

The former England captain stopped playing in May 2013 after five months at Paris Saint-Germain, having left Major League Soccer in December 2012 following more than five years at the Los Angeles Galaxy.

Beckham was recently spotted at PSG's stadium Parc des Princes, along with rapper Jay-Z and singer Beyonce.


The accounts show that the company's main activity is the "exploitation of David Beckham's name and image rights."
