Maldives corpse shock for Beckham family
(12-30 19:53)

A human corpse washed up at an exclusive island resort in the Maldives where English footballer David Beckham is taking a Christmas holiday with his family, police said.
A man’s body was found afloat near a jetty on Sunday at the One and Only Reethi Rah resort near the capital island Male. Police said the dead man, identified as a Sri Lankan national, was neither a guest nor an employee of the upmarket resort where Chelsea football club owner Roman Abramovich was also reportedly staying.
Beckham, his wife Victoria and their four children remained at the resort despite the problems on Sunday, tourism sources said.
The couple visited the Maldives a year ago and stayed at the same resort, but that holiday was dampened by incessant rain.
