David Beckham has clearly got plenty of time on his hands since retiring from football in May.

After exploring the possibility of starting up an MLS franchise of his own - rumored to be in Miami - he has now shown up at the Brazil team hotel in Miami.

The Selecao are preparing for Saturday's friendly with Honduras at Sun Life Stadium, and with the pressure mounting ahead of next summer's World Cup, what better way to escape the glare of the public than by posing with football's most famous son?

It could be 'Sir' David Beckham very soon, with the former Manchester United and Real Madrid man named as a candidate on the Queen's New Year's Honors List.

It will be an opportunity for Beckham to meet old friend Prince William, who he has worked with on various charitable projects as well England's failed bid to host the World Cup in 2022.

Brazil has had no such concerns, of course, and will host football's showpiece event in June next year.

Beckham will be back on British shores very soon, however. 'The Class of '92', a film chronicling Manchester United's golden generation of Giggs, Scholes, the Nevilles, Butt and, of course, Becks, will be released on December 1.
