In April it was announced that David has signed up to be Maserati’s new global brand ambassador. 

Speaking about his role at the time, David said: ‘It’s an exciting time for me to begin this partnership with Maserati; an iconic Italian brand which shares my appreciation for the very best innovation and design.

‘I’m looking forward to working closely with the brand at such a pivotal time in their history and continuing their growth on a global scale.’ 

While Paolo Tubito, Maserati Chief Marketing Officer, remarked: ‘The Brand is moving forward, inaugurated a new Era. Maserati is driven to challenge the status quo being innovative by nature, powered by passion, and unique by design.

‘The partnership with David is the embodiment of all these values.’

Later that month, David was seen embracing his wild side as he performed his own car stunts for a thrilling new clip as he got to work in his ambassador role. 

The football star was seen getting behind the wheel of a red Maserati Levante Trofeo SUV and doing donuts under a Miami freeway.

Not holding back, David expertly spun the vehicle and beamed a grin as he quickly forgot all about his ‘meetings’ and errands, instead embracing the joy of driving.

It comes as David’s wife Victoria continued to provide her fans with ‘quality football content’ on Tuesday as she shared another hilarious throwback snap ahead of England’s Euro 2020 tie against Czech Republic.

The designer, 47, shared the snap of herself watching from the stands during the 2006 World Cup in Germany, adding she was ‘really excited’ for the match, which saw the Three Lions triumph with a 1-0 victory.

Victoria was among a slew of stars who tuned into the tense 90 minutes, whether it be in Wembley Stadium or at home, with Jacqueline Jossa and Liam Payne leading those documenting their football-filled evening. 

The snap once again showed Victoria in skimpy red vest top emblazoned with the phrase England Rocks, along with tiny white shorts and knee-high tan leather boots.
