Footballer David Beckham was handed a surprise start for AC Milan's Serie A game at AS Roma.

Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti had stated Beckham would almost certainly be on the bench but has opted to give the England international a start on the right.

The 33-year-old is on loan for two-months from the Los Angeles Galaxy.
