David Beckham’s many fans have been quick to wish him well after reports emerged of a collision after he left Arsenal’s training grounds in London Colney earlier today (Saturday).

According to the Mail Online, the former England captain was involved in a collision with one other vehicle this morning after taking his son Brooklyn from the Gunners’ grounds.

The article explained: “Arsenal staff ushered onlookers away from the scene and Beckham was driven away in another car, with his original vehicle unable to be used.”

He had been at Arsenal’s training centre watching his and Victoria Beckham’s eldest son play for the club’s under-16 side against Brighton.

The Mail quoted a tweet from a visiting young Brighton footballer who apparently saw the aftermath of the collision, and said that it appeared David had hurt his shoulder.

While media reports say neither David nor Brooklyn were injured in the collision, David’s fans have posted their best wishes.

Before the collision, the star made one football mum’s day when she met him while watching her son mark his at London Colney, and later tweeted “I’m so happy”.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
