We posted last month about Elle UK getting its first-ever male cover star in the form of the god man himself - David Beckham. Now here is your first sneak peek behind-the-scenes of the cover shoot for the issue which is set to coincide with 2012 London Olympics.

As you probably imagine the June cover involves lots of David getting his top off (shame!) for the camera. There is also footage of him boxing shirtless (naturally) doing things with a towel, as well as long lingering shots of his crotch with the words "prepare yourself". For what, well you'll have to wait and see. Hopefully he will, I mean won't go full frontal. But since this is Elle and not Playgirl magazine I'm betting on won't.

As for what David makes of all this, well he's chuffed of course. "I'm honoured to have been asked to be the first ever solo male fashion cover," he said last month.

Now it's time to turn your computer screen away from your colleagues, pop an extra spoonful of sugar into your morning coffee and have a little moment as you sit back and enjoy this lovely piece of footage of Mr Becks.

Also if you subscribe to Elle by May 16th, you'll receive a free David Beckham scent, a limited edition cover and an exclusive for-your-eyes-only film. Saucy! Subscribe here: www.elleuk.com
