While wife Victoria Beckham, 38, was prepping for her big Spice Girls comeback at the 2012 London Olympic games' closing ceremony, soccer star David Beckham, 37, and his three boys, Romeo, Brooklyn and Cruz watched the US Olympic basketball team, complete with pro NBA players Kobe Bryant and LeBron James, secure gold victory against Spain's team.

Beckham has been an important figure in the 2012 London Olympic games, having had a hand in carrying the Olympic torch down the Thames River in the opening ceremonies, and more recently tweeting support for his fellow countryman and new bronze medalist Tom Daley.

"He wanted to wish me well and to say keep your chin up," Daley said, reports ContactMusic.com, after getting off to a rough start with his first 2012 Olympic performance. "David was asking how I've been feeling, giving me advice about what to take out of the synchro. He was kind of asking me the right questions, telling me it's not that bad and that I can come back."

Beckham also took to Twitter to congratulate his friend in sportsmanship. "Was great to catch up with @TomDaleyOfficial afer the event last night, so happy for him after the year he's been through."
