A David Beckham sighting in Tucson is making the rounds on Twitter.

His arrival is attracting some attention on the social media site, helped by a photo of Beckham posted by KOLD TV's Teresa Jun, who noted Beckham is a ‘nice' guy in person. Even Tucson International Airport posted a photo of Beckham on its Facebook page.

Beckham is joined in Tucson this week by Tiger Woods.
