The 'real' story of how David Beckham conquered Spain. Alex Leith travels the length and breadth of this vast country in the England captain's footsteps, watching all his matches and mingling with everyone from the Real Madrid ultras to the English press pack. Leith sneaks into press conferences, blags his way into the Real training ground and even comes face to face with Beckham himself in his quest to tell the real story of the English icon's first season in Spain. Through Leith's adventures we discover what Spain really makes of the Beckham phenomenon, along the way exploring the centuries old rivalries and fierce underlying politics that define Spanish football, and experiencing the fantastic colour and diversity of Spain itself.
