Soccer superstar David Beckham has revealed that he suffers from an obsessive compulsive disorder, which has led his wife, Posh Spice Victoria Beckham, to describe him as a “weirdo”.
He’s admitted he rearranges hotel rooms and lines up drink cans to make “everything perfect”.
"I've got this obsessive compulsive disorder where I have to have everything in a straight line or everything has to be in pairs. I'll put my Pepsi cans in the fridge and if there's one too many then I'll put it in another cupboard somewhere,” Becks says.
"I'll go into a hotel room and before I can relax, I have to move all the leaflets and all the books and put them in a drawer. Everything has to be perfect."
He has also confessed he was addicted to having tattoos, partly because he enjoys the pain.
Victoria has spoken out her husband’s habits before saying: “If you open our fridge, it's all co-ordinated down either side. We've got three fridges - food in one, salad in another and drinks in the third. In the drinks one, everything is symmetrical. If there's three cans, he'll throw one away because it has to be an even number.”
Obsessive compulsive disorder charities hope David’s announcement will draw attention to the condition and help others seeks treatment.
"There is still a lot of stigma about the condition and even GPs are not very good at picking up on it. Young men in particular are often reluctant to come forward and ask for treatment, so to have someone like David Beckham come out and talk about it is very good," a spokesman for the charity OCD UK says.
