David Beckham has revealed that he build Lego models to wind down.
The football legend told The Sunday Times (£) that the plastic bricks help to "calm me down" and said that he constructed a model of London's Tower Bridge in only a few days.
“When they [his children] get home, we’ll often play one of their favourite games, like Connect Four. They also love Lego. So do I,” the 38-year-old said.
“The last big thing I made was Tower Bridge. It was amazing. I think Lego sometimes helps to calm me down.”
He compared Lego-building with cooking, which he said he finds “very therapeutic”.

He said he uses LEGO as it makes his art "accessible", adding, "Kids and families see the art and they can relate to it because we've all played with LEGO bricks at some point in our lives".
The Art of the Brick exhibition is open at Discovery Times Square.

Lego people are getting angrier, according to a new study.
A New Zealand university academic said he studied all 6,000 mini-figures and found that angry faces have become more common since the toymakers started producing a greater variety of characters in the 1990s.
He suggested commercial partnership with the likes of the Harry Potter films and the Halo video games had led to more good and evil characters being depicted.
"But the facial expressions are not directly matched to good and evil," said Dr Christopher Bartneck of the University of Caterbury. "Even the good characters suffer in their struggle and the villains can have a smug expression."
"We cannot help but wonder how the move from only positive faces to an increasing number of negative faces impacts on how children play," he added.
