Oh dear Beckham, where has your hair gone?

London - His ever-changing hairstyle used to win him as much attention as his performance on the pitch.

But nowadays David Beckham often wears a hat in pictures he posts to his 60 million followers on Instagram.

And his appearance during a shopping trip at the weekend may explain why.

The former England captain, 45, was noticeably thinner on top and appeared to be greying.

It is a dramatic change from the luxuriant locks Beckham has been famed for over the years.

He has worn his hair with blond highlights, in a buzz cut, cornrows, a mohican, spiky and gelled, quiffed, in various types of ponytail and even in a man bun.

The father of four, who has regularly endorsed grooming products, was rumoured to have had a hair transplant in 2018, although his representatives have always refused to comment.

His battle with baldness was apparent when he was spotted near a delicatessen in the Cotswolds, on Sunday with his daughter Harper, eight.

Beckham, who is spending the coronavirus lockdown at his Oxfordshire country home with wife Victoria, 46, was pictured in a white polo top, red jumper and black denim shorts.

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid star once suggested he would not be tempted to have a hair transplant.

"There is definitely nothing wrong with doing that," he said in 2012. "But I don’t think personally I would. If I do start showing signs of going bald, then I will shave it off."
