David Beckham July 2012 Elle Uk Cover

David Beckham covers the July 2012 issue of Elle UK in black pants and no shirt. This is the first solo male cover star for Elle UK. It comes just ahead of the 2012 Olympic games in London.

Elle editor in Chief Lorraine Candy says, "David Beckham is a national hero. He is an icon and Elle is known for featuring icons on its cover. This is a first for us on the newsstand and I believe he is loved by men and women alike."

Elle UK asked David Beckham to describe himself. Beckham said, "How would I sum myself up? I don't know, I prefer other people to do that. Erm... a little bit shy."
