David Beckham left London's Heathrow Airport this morning to catch a flight back to Los Angeles.
Now I was under the impression that he was leaving last night as yesterday coach Yallop said yesterday David was to be "traveling all night and turning up at 1 o'clock at LAX". But of course he meant all night LA time and not London time.
If David got the 10am BA flight, he should arrive in LA 1pm as Yallop said. So that would leave 6 hours before kick off.
Now let's calculate this.
- David will land around 1pm, with a police escort he will clear customs and be in a car by 1.30pm.
- He would then travel home, which from any airport would take approximately an hour, so I guess he will arrive home by 2.30pm.
- Players tend to arrive at the stadium 2 hours before kick off to allow pre-match talk, and warm up, so David would need to be at the stadium by 5pm.
- So between 2.30pm and 4pm (allowing an approximately an hour to travel to the stadium), he will have about an hour and a half to say 'Hi' to his family, unpack his bags and get a little shut eye.
I think only Superman can pull this off. I am exhausted just typing that.
Wishing David all the best for tonights game.
