Isn’t it a bit early to be getting such an award? Also, not at all sure about the new haircut, but then I am no style icon so what do I know.

Former England captain David Beckham has received the BBC Sports Personality Lifetime Achievement award.
The 35-year-old midfielder is England’s most capped outfield player and won six Premier League titles and the Champions League crown with Manchester United.
He won the Spanish league with Real Madrid after a £25m move from United before joining Los Angeles Galaxy and also spent two loan spells at AC Milan.
In 2001 Beckham was named BBC Sports Personality of the Year.
“I’m humbled to receive an award for something I love doing and continue to love doing, [I am] very humbled,” said a tearful Beckham, who accepted the award from Sir Bobby Charlton.
“To receive it from Sir Bobby, who was there when I first started, [I am] truly honoured,” he added.
“Football’s a team game. Without the teams and players’ support I’ve had over the years, players like Ryan [Giggs] and the other greats, I wouldn’t be here without the support and skill of them. (BBC Sport)
