27 December 2008

Football star David Beckham, 33, the face of Pepsi, is giving up his 2million-a-year contract with PepsiCo.

He plans to focus on other work with companies such as Vodafone and Armani.

"I have nothing but good memories of my association with Pepsi. I've played a gladiator, a cowboy, a surfer, and worked alongside Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez as well as some of the biggest names in world football.

"I hope everyone who has seen the work enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed making it," he said.

The star has appeared dressed up as gladiator, cowboy and surfer for the Pepsi's advertising campaign.
