David Beckham made £16.5 million from personal sponsorship deals in his final year as a professional footballer.

Beckham, 38, retired from playing in May after a spell at Paris Saint-Germain, where he made 10 Ligue 1 appearances, having moved to the club after five years at Major League Soccer side Los Angeles Galaxy.

Beckham's company, Footwork Productions, reported the latest accounts as seeing an increase in 2012's turnover of 10 percent.

The accounts show the former Manchester United and Real Madrid player received a salary of £14.1 million from his company, but they do not include his $4 million (£2.49m) salary from the Galaxy.

Earlier in October it was reported that Beckham is moving closer to an agreement to take charge of a new MLS franchise in Miami.
