David Beckham plays good Samaritan

You can say bend it like Beckham. But on some other days you can say Save it like Beckham.

Beckham the world's most famous footballer and highest paid sports star, played the role of a good samaritan during a soccer match.

He recently skipped an L.A. Galaxy league match to play in best friend Gary Neville's testimonial against Juventus at Old Trafford on Tuesday 24 May 2011.

This is the first time in 8 years that Beckham was back at his former home and wearing a Manchester United shirt since 2003 when he left for Real Madrid.

The incident happened as Beckham was preparing to take a corner kick.

Just so, a couple of kids attempted their pitch invasion.

One was caught right away while the other fulfilled his desire to waste everyone's time by scampering around the pitch and evading a trio of stewards.

Beckham, meanwhile, just stood with his hands on his hips, waiting for his superior gravitational pull to attract the kid to him and when it did, he wrapped him up with a bear hug.

From there, the herd of stewards took over and moved to expel the two kids from the stadium as Beckham made a point to argue that they should be let go and showed his displeasure when they weren't.

He then struck his corner kick and carried on being the one and only David Beckham.
