David Beckham was warned off swimming in the Amazon during the recent shooting of a documentary â€” for fear of a deadly fish swimming into his genitalia, sources tell [email protected]
The 38-year-old Becks, famously nicknamed â€œGoldenballs,â€ was told by the productionâ€™s medical supervisors not to go for a dip during filming in the Brazilian rainforest because of the so-called â€œvampire fish.â€
