12. David Beckham
David Beckham and his wife Victoria lead such public lives that one would assume there’s absolutely nothing left for us to learn about them. However, a couple of years ago, we were surprised to see David with an inhaler during the half-time of LA Galaxy’s major League soccer cup Final. His team lost 5-4 on penalties, but that’s not as important right now as the fact that the star was then rumored to have asthma. Apparently, it turned out to be true.
The football world’s most high-profile star admitted to suffering from asthma. He further explained how he would often feel “worn out” at the end of a football season, but how he didn’t attribute this to his medical condition. After all, football is a demanding game, even for people who don’t suffer from asthma.
