David Beckham buys drink for paramedic and her patient

DAVID Beckham treated a paramedic to a hot drink as she treated a patient in London.

Catherine Maynard, who works as part of the Cycle Response Unit, was looking after a male patient in central London when she came across the former soccer star.

She said: "I was waiting with my patient for an ambulance to transfer him to hospital and although I was keeping him warm it was very cold outside.

"All of a sudden, I looked up and saw someone who looked like David Beckham walking past us. He said hello and got in his car. I said to the man I was treating, 'I think that was David Beckham'. Ten minutes later, he came back with a cup of coffee for me and a tea for the patient."

And Catherine admits she was "flattered" by the 40-year-old star's random act of kindness.

She added: "We were both very amused, and flattered. It was awful cycling around in the cold today and I couldn't believe it when he came back with some hot drinks - I was so chuffed."

Catherine's patient was taken to an urgent care centre where he was treated for minor injuries.
