Ntini's pants question to Beckham

What would you ask if you had the chance to chat with David Beckham

What would you ask if you had the chance to chat with David Beckham? For Makhaya Ntini it was the moment to ask him about his underwear.

The pair met during the football World Cup draw in Cape Town and Ntini took the chance to find out if it was true that Beckham only used his underwear once.

"I shared a room with David and even asked him about his underwear – if it's true that he uses it just once and throws it away,” Ntini said ahead of his 100th Test. "He said he had heard about these stories but they are all lies. I said, 'If I was your gardener, I would sleep next to the dustbin because the following morning something is going to be dumped there. And if it has only been used once, I can use it again!'"
