Ah, that's the life! David Beckham is still basking in the glory of England's triumph over Sweden in the World Cup quarter-finals. The former footballer was pictured relaxing on a peacock inflatable as he sunbathed in his pool, glass of wine in hand. David showed off his heavily tattooed body as he wore nothing but a pair of tiny white shorts, a hat and sunglasses. His wife Victoria uploaded the picture on Instagram, writing: "He keeps telling me it's coming home and I'm starting to believe him!! X."

The cheeky photo of a near-nude David unsurprisingly racked up over 1.6million likes, with many fans commenting on the sportsman's buff physique. "He's like a fine wine," one follower replied to Victoria. "OMG eye candy," another agreed. A third posted: "That is definitely the life."

Just hours before the match, David had challenged his friend and former teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic to a hilarious wager. David accepted the Swedish sportsman's bet that if Sweden win, David would take Zlatan to IKEA and buy him anything he wanted for his new LA mansion. But if England win, Zlatan would have to travel to Wembley to watch a football match and eat fish and chips at half-time. After England's win, David shared a throwback photo of the pair and wrote: "Looks like someone's coming to Wembley again!"
