Overview

The real story of David Beckham in Spain. Alex Leith journeys the length and breadth of this vast country in David Beckham's footsteps, travelling to Real Madrid's away matches and mingling with everyone from hardcore ultras to the English press pack. He meets Spain's world famous drum-beating fan, the priest who challenged Ronaldo to a match and a dog called Figo. He goes in goal while kids shoot oranges at him in Seville and drinks pints with the English fans of Malaga. He chats to Beckham's team-mates and opponents, blags his way into the Real Madrid training ground and comes face to face with El Becks himself. As the season unfolds, through Leith's adventures we discover what Spain really makes of Beckham and 'los galacticos' of Real Madrid, along the way exploring the centuries old rivalries and fierce underlying politics that define Spanish football, and experiencing the warmth, colour and diversity of Spain itself.
