LONDON (AP) – David Beckham reportedly earned more than $26 million from personal sponsorship deals in his final full year as a footballer.
The former England captain retired from playing in May after five months at Paris Saint-Germain , having left Major League Soccer in December 2012 following more than five years at the Los Angeles Galaxy .
The latest accounts for Beckham's company, Footwork Productions, showed that turnover rose in 2012 by 10 percent to 16.5 million pounds ($26.6 million).
During 2012, Beckham was highly visible at the London Olympics , both in the opening ceremony and with his Samsung sponsorship.
The accounts show the 39-year-old former Manchester United and Real Madrid player received a salary of 14.1 million pounds ($22.7 million) from his company.
The accounts don't include Beckham's $4 million salary from the Galaxy.
