Fans of football superstar David Beckham are cashing in on his recent visit to New Zealand by trying to sell his food scraps and dirty dishes on the Internet.
Among the items put up for sale on New Zealand website Trade Me are a half eaten corn cob, a nearly empty bottle of Coca-Cola (now NZ$501) and a single French fry, which the seller said Beckham had dropped while eating on a Wellington street.
The chewed corn cob and soft drink came from a chicken restaurant where Beckham ate on Thursday night. The seller was also auctioning the plate and knife and fork she claimed he had used at the restaurant.
The French fry attracted an initial bid of one dollar (75 US cents), rising to three dollars by late afternoon Wednesday.
Beckham was in the New Zealand capital for three days last week with his LA Galaxy football team to play an exhibition match against local team Wellington Phoenix.
