David Beckham’s barnet has always been a benchmark for male grooming but his latest hairstyle has caused some controversy.

The 43-year-old appeared to have dyed his hair when he turned up on stage in Hong Kong on Monday as a brand ambassador for an insurance firm. Recent pictures of Beckham showed his hair looking a bit thin on top, so fans and the media were quick to comment.

Piers Morgan weighed in on ‘Good Morning Britain’ saying: “What does he look like? Dear oh dear. Honestly. I’ll never get the attraction of Beckham. Quite extraordinary.”

Meanwhile, Twitter debated whether Beckham had used hair dye or had a transplant. “Christ, it looks like he’s done it himself from a spray-on hair can. Dropped about 10,000 places on the sexiest men list!” wrote @StressedEric72. Meanwhile @TheStellaRossa suggested simply: “Shave your head, son.”
