David Beckham look-a-like monkey becomes big hit in China
Beckham first appeared with the iconic Mohican hairstyle back in 2001
A six-month-old monkey who has David Beckham’s famous Mohican-like hairstyle is becoming the new sensation in China.
The little monkey, which is based at Nanjing Hongshan Forest Zoo is becoming very attractive for tourists who want to see the Beckham look-a-like macaque, UK's Daily Mail reported quoting a Chinese website.
The resemblance was first noticed by zookeepers who decided to name the little monkey Xiao Qi or Little Seven which is how Beckham's daughter Harper Seven is known in China.
“She had a lot of hair but the sides were very short which looked a lot like Beckham's hairstyle,” Chen Yuanyuan, the zoo-keeper who looks after Xiao Qi, said.
“Because it is a female we named her after his daughter,” the zoo-keeper added.
Beckham first appeared with the iconic Mohican hairstyle back in 2001 before he was asked to get rid of it ahead of a match at Wembley Stadium.
“I don’t know why I had that one,” Beckham said during an interview with Graham Norton.
“I was in the dressing room with an hour to go before kick off when Sir Alex Ferguson saw it and made me shave it off,” the football star added.
