Hong Kong singer Alan Tam uploaded a photo of him posing with David Beckham, holding a football jersey that sported an autograph from the former English footballer.

The two had run into each other at the 18th China Music Awards yesterday. David had been invited to attend the event, while Alan was there to receive the prestigious “China Music Lifetime Achievement Singer” award.

In 1987, the veteran singer had announced his decision to quit award ceremonies, and last night’s award was the first time in 27 years that he had broken his oath.

It was also his first time requesting for an autograph from his idol. Alan gushed, “I’ve finally made an exception to ask for an autograph publicly and even got invited to sit and have a drink (with David)!”

After the ceremony, Alan revealed that Alan & Hacken Live, a collaboration concert between him and Hong Kong singer Hacken Lee, was awarded with the “Best Concert of the Year” award, but his buddy was unable to attend the event  because he was busy filming the World Cup theme song for TVB.

Recently, Alan and Hacken have both purportedly rejected to host for TVB’s World Cup programme because of their concert tour. Alan explained, “There are a lot of things to shoot beforehand for TVB (if we accept the roles), but we’ll begin preparations for our tour the day after. Hence, we won’t be able to accept the hosting job, and can only help with the recording of the theme song.”
