David Beckham is planning to launch his own range of underwear.

The soccer heartthrob – who has modelled briefs for Emporio Armani – wants to follow his wife Victoria into the fashion world once he has retired from the sport.

A source said: “David is 35 and knows he won’t be playing soccer forever. But he’s an icon for men all over the world and he wears pants like no one can – so it makes sense for him to launch his own.”

David – who is currently playing for Los Angeles Galaxy – is being backed in his plans by his manager Simon Fuller and fashion designer Stella McCartney’s husband Alasdhair Willis

He also wants Victoria – who launched her debut collection in 2008 and is now a well-respected member of the fashion world – to be heavily involved in the project.

The source added to the News of the World newspaper: “Alasdhair and Simon are focused on turning David into a major fashion presence. Victoria’s also very excited. She obviously thinks David is the sexiest man in the world and perfect to front the range.”
