       James Corden pranked David Beckham with a fake LA Galaxy statue

In good news, the real statue of Beckham was unveiled earlier this month, and this one actually resembles the legend.

The legendary footballer is due to have a statue unveiled at his former team LA Galaxy's stadium, but before the official reveal James decided to make some mischief.

So it was understandable how upset David Beckham got at the unveiling of his ugly statue on Monday - all part of a genius prank by James Corden.

In a dummy ceremony, which Beckham attended believing he was being given a preview before the statue was unveiled to the public, the 43-year-old just about kept his cool when the unflattering likeness was unveiled.

"It's slightly different than it was when I saw it in Chicago", David tells a comedian portraying the statue's sculptor. It doesn't look anything like me though, look at my eyes! I really dont see how this can go out.

"The only thing that's good is the hair", he added. My parents are coming over from London, my wife (Victoria Beckham) is coming over.

"There's no way that can go at the front of the stadium". "Yeah, but there was capturing me in motion but also making me... look at my chin!"

"If my kids were to see this, I think they'd just cry!"

The final phase of the prank saw a forklift driver arriving to move the statue to its permanent home - and "accidentally" tip it over, smashing it to pieces. The ex-player still wasn't happy but at least remarked to the guilty party, "You've probably done me a favour there".

Switching the real statue for one that looked nothing like the footballer, hidden cameras filmed the 43-year-old's reaction to the disgusting sculpture.
