Soccer star David Beckham admitted last week that he has suffered from "a slight case of asthma" since he was young. The news came after Beckham was photographed using an inhaler at half-time during LA Galaxy's major League soccer cup. Initially, the team told the press that he was using the inhaler for allergies; but later Beckham came clean about his medical condition.
David and Victoria Beckham are so public with information about their private life—including their sex life—that it's surprising to me that they kept news of his asthma a secret. And I wonder if other asthma sufferers will be inspired by Beckham's story and accomplishments despite having asthma.
Asthma sufferers, what do you think? Are you surprised that Beckham kept his asthma a secret?
