David Beckham had to rush to an emergency dentist after breaking a tooth in a snowboard accident - days after his son broke his collarbone in a similar manner.

The football legend, 41, fell off his board while on a family holiday in Whistler, Canada.

He needed an incisor fixed on his return to London.

A source told The Sun: 'David is a trooper and didn’t make a fuss. He took it all in his stride.

'There’s no need to panic now that he’s lost the good looks that landed him a fortune. But it was a worrying time.'

Earlier this week Brooklyn uploaded an Instagram video showing the moment he broke his collarbone.

The 17-year-old heads down a run, skimming close to a small woodland drop at the edge of the piste and also going over a couple of small jumps.

But it is on a wide, tamer-looking part of the slope where the accident happened, as the nose of his board gets caught in the snow and he tumbles over, throwing up a huge cloud of powder.

Hours later after an undoubtedly painful time in hospital, he shared an image of his X-Ray, displaying his collar bone ripped apart, putting him out of action for the rest of the trip.

The video, which was viewed almost 400,000 times in the first four hours, was simply uploaded with the caption 'Broke my collarbone at the end.'
