Joe Lycett and David Beckham

Joe Lycett has shredded £10,000 after David Beckham failed to respond to the ultimatum given to him by the comic to pull out of his role as a Qatar ambassador.

The comedian and presenter issued the ultimatum to the former England footballer on Monday after it was reported he had signed a £10 million deal with the FIFA World Cup hosts.

The contest kicks off today at 4pm in Qatar – where homosexuality is still illegal and anyone found participating in same-sex, sexual activity can be punished with up to seven years in prison.

After David and his reps failed to respond to Joe’s very public request, the comic stuck to his promise and livestreamed him destroying £10,000 in cash at midday on Sunday on www.benderslikebeckham.com.

In his original video message directed at the former England captain, Joe commended him for always talking about “the power of football as a force for good” but said Qatar is “one of the worst places in the world to be gay”.

He told him: “If you end your relationship with Qatar I will donate ten grand of my own money (that’s a grand for every million you’re reportedly getting) to charities that support queer people in football.

“However, if you do not I will throw the money into a shredder at midday next Sunday, just before the opening ceremony of the World Cup and stream it right here.

“Not just the money, but also your status as gay icon will be shredded.

“Also you’ll be forcing me to commit what might be a crime. Although even then, I reckon I’ll get off more lightly than I would if I got caught whacking off a lad in Doha.”

David or his reps have still yet to respond.

Ahead of Joe shredding the cash, there had been a mixed response from fans over his intentions.

Many took to social media to urge the star to donate the money to a food bank rather than shredding it at a time when the cost of living is soaring.
