David Beckham turned 36 on Monday, and he celebrated the occasion by taking in a basketball game with TV chef Gordon Ramsay.
The pair watched the LA Lakers play from the front row, and appeared to be discussing tactics throughout as they huddled together.
The birthday boy also took to Facebook to reveal his birthday wish.
He released a video - as part of a Unicef campaign - in which he appealed to fans to buy footballs for unprivileged children who cannot afford them.
The Galaxy footballer asked his followers to spend $33 on a gift that would help them "forget their worries for an hour or two".
