Martin Kemp recalls Roman screaming at David Beckham and calling him a 'w*****r' as a kid
Manchester United legend.Spandau Ballet star Martin, now 61, relived the experience in a chat with Kate Thornton for her podcast series White Wine Question Time."I remember once we were in the stands and David Beckham was taking a lot of stick at the time," he wryly recalled."I was looking at Roman and he's standing on his seat going: 'Beckham, you w****r!
