London, June 27 (IANS) Football star David Beckham doesn’t mind fans asking for his autographs because he still asks his sporting heroes for their signatures. Beckham admits he is often inundated with autograph requests and would never turn a fan away because of his own hobby of collecting signed items. quoted him as saying: “The whole experience of wanting someone’s autograph is something special, especially when you’re a little kid and you have heroes whom you look up to. I’ve been incredibly lucky - I’ve met so many great people like (Muhammad) Ali and (Michael) Jordan so that’s quite a few autographs.

“I’ve got all that I’m proud of. Also, when I was young I got one of my heroes’ autographs, (British soccer star) Bryan Robson. So I was very lucky.”
