FORMER footballer David Beckham has added his voice to the campaign against independence, urging Scots not to ditch a bond which was “the envy of the entire world”.

The ex-England captain said he was proud to have represented the UK as part of the team that secured the 2012 Olympics for London and then was “thrilled to watch us competing together against the world” at the Games.

“The achievement that gave me the most pride was to captain and play for my country,” he said in an open letter, released by the “Let’s Stay Together” campaign group which has more than 100,000 supporters.
