Becks worth one thousandth more than average Brit
A new study suggests that the average Brit is valued at one thousandth of David Beckham.
New figures show a person living in the UK has a net worth of around 147,000 pounds compared to David Beckham's 165million pounds, the Daily Star reported.
Legal experts worked out the comparison from looking at people's mortgage equity, pension pot and personal belongings.
And despite the big difference, they say most Brits are better off than they think.
In the study of 2,000 adults, the average mortgage equity averaged around 75,000 pounds - a lot more than many people thought.
Almost half (42 percent) had no idea that it even existed while 11 percent did not even know what it meant.
The study showed on average that Brits have around 10,000 pounds saved up in actual cash too.
Around 5.603 pounds is stored away in a savings account and another 3,712 pounds in a building society ISA.
This is added to 1,348 pounds that averages in a current bank account.
Most Brits have a pension scheme that works out to around 30,000 pounds sitting there untouched for years and on top of all this about 6,706 pounds for the average car and 15,077 pounds for items in the home. Add all of this together and you get 147,134 pounds.
