David Beckham expertly trolls son Brooklyn on Instagram

David Beckham may have retired from football but he appears to have found a pastime he is equally good at: being an embarrassing dad.

Having already shown up his son Brooklyn on Instagram before, the former England captain had another go this weekend.

Brooklyn, 16, posted a picture of himself with his eyes closed, with the caption: "Rocking the old school Ralph Lauren."

Amid thousands of comments from adoring followers, his father then chimed in with a comment: "That's my jumper."

The reply prompted thousands of comments in itself, with one writing: "Dads were born to humiliate their kids!"

Another one said: "You're not the only one with the embarrassing dad, I went to the cinema with my friends and as I got out of the car he said 'have a good time, love you lots and be home for dinner'. I wanted to kill myself."
