  Beckham takes nap in art gallery
Updated 27 April 2004, 08.55
Beckham is sleeping in an art gallery
David Beckham's got a new role - as the star attraction in one of Britain's most famous art galleries.

It didn't take much effort, though. All the England captain had to do was sleep while an artist videoed the event.

The one hour seven minute tape is being shown over and over again at the National Portrait Gallery in London.

"Filming while he was asleep produced a different view from the many, familiar public images," said artist Sam Taylor- Wood, who has called the piece "David".

It was decided Becks would be most tired after a training session with his team, Spanish side Real Madrid.

Allegations

Becks booked into a Madrid hotel and, after he dropped off, the artist set the camera running.

The footballer has been in the news loads recently following allegations that he cheated on his pop star wife Victoria.
