Becks confession sends Lego sales rocketing

Table of Contents
Sales of Lego have skyrocketed after soccer superstar David Beckham confessed his love for the construction toys.

In a Yahoo! web-chat with fans earlier this month, Beckham revealed he built a Lego model of the Taj Majal in his spare time while playing for AC Milan last year.

Sales of that particular set, which has 5,922 pieces, have since soared 663 per cent. And that was in just one day of business.

Now Lego bosses have invited the former England captain and his family to visit their head office in Billund, Denmark - home of the original Legoland park.

There, they would be given a tour of the firm's museum and probably encouraged to help themselves in the main shop.

A Lego spokesman said: "David and the boys are big fans and we are always open to new ideas from people passionate about Lego.

"We hope they take us up on our invitation."
