Snoop then recalled the special bond the two men share over their family values and how it has played a part in their friendship over the years.

When Beckham relocated to the US after joining the Los Angeles Galaxy team back in 2007 he appeared on Snoop's reality show Father Hood as they tried to introduce the chart star's children to soccer.

Snoop - who included David's sons Romeo, 20, and Cruz, 18, in his backstage reunion with David at the O2 - admitted that the episode serves as a reminder of how far they have come as friends and as families since the show aired.

He said: "When I had my show Father Hood on the E! Channel he came on and did some things with my kids about his football. His babies were real little babies then, but when he come to see me the other day he brings his babies with him and they are grown now. We’ve just grown as a friendship, as a brotherhood and as a family."
