David Beckham's appearance at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Sports Awards ended when he and his two sons - Romeo and Cruz - were covered in gold goo as part of a skit. Beckham managed to smile through the sliming incident, after his initial shock, but Cruz was distinctly less impressed when his t-shirt was ruined by the practical joke. Fortunately, the trio were the only guests at the awards ceremony to be slimed, everyone else fared considerably better.
