BECKS..YOUR SECURITY IS PANTS; Fans raid dressing room &find star in his undies.
TWO football fans told yesterday how they bluffed their way into the Real Madrid dressing-room and came face to face with David Beckham.
Slipping past security guards simply by saying "Amigo David Beckham", they stumbled across the man himself - still in underpants and T-shirt after having treatment for an injury.
Tony Fox, 43, and Dave Murray, 49, chatted to the England captain, before being pounced on in the heart of Madrid's Bernabeu stadium.
Local government officer Tony said: "We still can't believe it. It's like getting to royalty.
"Not only did we breach security in one of the world's toughest stadiums, we also got to the icon himself.
"But I want his people to be aware. It's a worry, with all the threats he's had to his family. I could have been someone dangerous.
"It was a fantastic privilege to meet the man but in hindsight, because he gets all these cranks as well as supporters, it must have been quite frightening for him afterwards."
Tony, from Morecambe, Lancs, and Dave were in Spain last weekend to watch Real play Bilbao.
They went to the Bernabeu to buy tickets on the Saturday morning and tagged along with a Japanese group on a stadium tour.
The pair sneaked on to the pitch, past the dug-outs and into the home dressing-room.
Tony said: "We saw all the kit laid out - then Beckham came in smiling, just in white underpants and T-shirt. We shook his hand. I told him 'I used to go out with Emma Bunton'.`
He told us he was playing that night and we talked about Euro 2004."
Guards soon arrived and the pair were marched out. The club is investigating the lapse.
Meanwhile, Beckham's team-mate Luis Figo lost jewels and cash in a raid on his Madrid home.
