David Beckham earned more than $26 million from personal sponsorship deals in his final full year as a footballer.

The former England captain retired from playing in May after five months at Paris Saint-Germain, having left Major League Soccer in December 2012 following more than five years at the Los Angeles Galaxy.

The latest accounts for Beckham's company, Footwork Productions, showed that turnover rose in 2012 by 10 percent to 16.5 million pounds ($26.6 million).

During 2012, Beckham was highly visible at the London Olympics, both in the opening ceremony and with his Samsung sponsorship.

The accounts show the 38-year-old former Manchester United and Real Madrid player received a salary of 14.1 million pounds ($22.7 million) from his company.

The accounts don't include Beckham's $4 million salary from the Galaxy.
