David Beckham's armored BMW X5 stolen

David Beckham's armour-plated BMW X5 was stolen in Madrid after he lent it to an assistant, according to several media reports. The '£100,000 SUV was taken from outside the Gran Madrid hotel near Beckham's home in the upmarket suburb of La Moraleja. The star lent the grey X5 to one of his aides who was on a trip from the U.K. He apparently forgot to switch on the car's built-in tracking system. Police believe the thieves are unlikely to have known it belonged to the star. "He is gutted. David loves this car," The Sun quoted a friend as saying. Beckham is said to have bought the armored SUV after a kidnap attempt on his six-year-old son Brooklyn.
