He cut a stylish figure in a smart suit and tie and an eye-catching new bleached blonde hairdo as he took to the pitch at the Etihad Stadium during the charity match for UNICEF.
As he was interviewed by Dermot O’Leary, viewers took to Twitter to say the look was a winner on him.
“If you’re a man in your 40s bleaching your hair is a complete no. Unless you David Beckham of course,” said one.
“David Beckham is such a legend loving the new hair colour too,” commented another.
“David Beckham has changed by his hair color. He dyed his hair. Looks great,” tweeted another fan.
