Beckham, who celebrated his 40th birthday at the start of the month, was present with a large number of family members including wife Victoria and son Brooklyn as they took in the sights on a punting trip down the River Cam.

The former England captain appeared in one punt with his two other boys Romeo and Cruz while Victoria took another boat with their three-year-old daughter Harper.

With news of the Beckham clan in town, tourists and residents alike looked to catch a glimpse of the celebrity couple and the family, which in turn led to news of their visit to Cambridge all over social media.

Brooklyn took to his Instagram account to reveal his delight at meeting Steven Hawking:

What an honour to meet Stephen Hawking. Such an inspiring afternoon.
