David Beckham might have to start going to the gym more often after his three-year-old daughter told him he was "chubby".

Appearing on tonight's Graham Norton Show on BBC One, he said he only goes to the gym occasionally now, adding: "I got out of the bath the other day and Harper (left) said, 'You're so chubby, but I still love you'."

The former England captain admitted injuries had started to take their toll towards the end of his career.

"That last six months was tough on my body - you get certain aches you weren't getting when you were 21 years old and I was waking up every morning really sore," he said.

"That's when I realised it was the right time to stop. I didn't want to be one of these players that continue and people start saying, 'Maybe he's getting a bit old'."
