It was freezing cold when ambulance worker Catherine Maynard bicycled around London recently. Maynard uses a bike to get around to people who need help.
She had been commissioned to help an elderly gentleman who had fallen and hurt himself on the streets.
- I waited with my patient for an ambulance that would transport him to the hospital, and although I kept him warm, it was very cold outside, says Catherine, from the London Ambulance Service.
While she waited, suddenly a person she thought she recognized appeared.
- Suddenly I looked up and saw someone who resembled David Beckham walk past us. He said hello and walked to his car. I told the man I sat with, "I think it was David Beckham."
Ten minutes later he came back with coffee and tea for me and my patient, says Catherine.
Catherine and the patient were very happy that the superstar took the time to help them.
- We were both very happy and flattered. It was awful to ride around in the cold today and I could not believe it when he came back with a hot drinks - we were so happy, says Catherine.
Retired fotballer David Beckham also joined her for a photo afterwards, which the London Ambulance Service has tweeted.

It goes with the story that the patient had minor injuries and were transported to a local hospital.
