After visiting Alibaba Group (BABA.US) headquarters in Hangzhou and a Sands China (01928.HK) event in Macau last week, British soccer star David Beckham was seen at an office of sourcing giant Li & Fung (00494.HK) in Hong Kong on Monday.
Pictures posted on social media showed Beckham touring the office in Lai Chi Kwok along with Bruce Rockowitz, chief executive of Global Brands Group (00787.HK), an affiliate of Li & Fung.
There was speculation in local media that Beckham could be discussing possible cooperation with Li & Fung as the former is interested in entering the casual sports clothing industry. Meanwhile, he was also said to be catching up with his old friend Rockowitz.
Apple Daily cited well-known singer Coco Lee, who is the wife of Rockowitz, as saying that she had planned to say ‘hi’ to Beckham at Li & Fung’s office, but the British icon didn’t stay long as his presence had caused some chaos in the office.
