London, January 26 : A brand of condoms named after football ace David Beckham has taken the Chinese contraceptive market under its sway.
Although the Beckham contraceptive is not being endorsed by the former England captain himself, its makers claim that the users will score in the bedroom like David does on the pitch. This brand now sells more than any other brand in the country.
Chinese fans of the LA Galaxy soccer star, however, want the marketing of these condoms banned.
"We do not want Beckham to think the Chinese people are disrespecting him. We love him here," the Sun quoted one as saying.
Beckham's agent Simon Oliveira said: "It's not an official brand."
