One of the most glamorous couples in football circles and sports generally is David and Victoria Beckham.

However, media reports suggest that the marriage of almost two decades is hitting the rocks and a divorce in the offing.

After initially keeping mute,  the duo have denied the widespread rumours that they are set to divorce, describing the reports as "embarrassing and laughable".

They were forced to respond after a number of media outlets reported bookmakers had suspended betting on the couple separating.

Representatives told The Sun there was "no statement due, no divorce, and a lot of Chinese whispers and fake social media news".

"This is all very bizarre and an embarrassing waste of time," they added.

Earlier on Friday morning, Victoria posted an image on Instagram of her and her daughter, Harper Seven, and captioned it: "We love and miss u @davidbeckham".

Thousands of Twitter and Facebook users shared claims a divorce was imminent between the showbiz power couple - with the rumours even becoming one of the internet's most discussed "trending topics".
