Beckham signs Gillette deal

LONDON, England (CNN) -- David Beckham, one of the world's most popular soccer stars, has signed a three-year marketing deal to be the new face of Gillette.

Beckham will promote Gillette's blades and razors worldwide. Terms of the deal were not immediately released.

The star midfielder for Real Madrid and the captain of England's national football team will be featured in the "Feeling of Gillette" advertising campaign, which kicks off in Europe next month, the company said in a statement.

Beckham, who reportedly makes about $10 million a year for Real Madrid, already has multimillion-dollar deals with Adidas and Pepsi.
