You shouldn't have! No really....

The Greeks and Romans honoured their gods with statues and sacrifices, but nowadays we offer up more humble and prosaic gifts. David Beckham has been awarded the ultimate accolade by junk food manufacturers - a Pot Noodle flavour has been named after him.

We're sure both Beckham and Posh will soon be tucking into the 'Golden (meat) ball' with gusto. The Pot Noodle boss told The Mirror, 'On hearing that David is such a fan, we got to work on a flavour just for him.'

The company has also thoughtfully delivered a consignment of the noodles to LA, in order to aid the footballer's recovery from his ankle injury. The famous healing properties of Pot Noodles will be put to the test - if Beckham makes a surprise appearance at the World Cup, we'll know who to thank...
