Beckham was speaking at the premiere of O'Sullivan's new film on Tuesday night.

The seven-time world champion is the subject of a new Amazon Prime Video documentary titled Ronnie O'Sullivan: The Edge of Everything.

"Firstly, it’s a huge privilege to have been part of this," Beckham, who is an executive producer on the film, said at the premiere.

"I was always a fan of Ronnie. I grew up in the East End of London and when I wasn’t playing football, I was playing snooker.

"I used to go up to the snooker hall in Chingford every other day when I wasn’t playing football.

"Then when my dad was playing football on the weekends, I’d end up playing snooker in the bar. That was something I grew up on.

"I was able to spend a little time with Ronnie over the years. One of my favourite nights as a Manchester United player, we’d played in London and I think we went out for a couple of beers and I ended up back at Ronnie’s house.

"His mum was making a cup of tea for us and we had a few frames. That was one of my favourite nights as a Manchester United player because I got to spend a few hours with Ronnie and get to know him.

"To be able to make this film is very special because it’s not just about him as a snooker player. It’s about him and his life.

"He is a special person but to watch him play is just beautiful.

"With Ronnie, and the same with me, my dad was hard on me as a kid. But that’s what made me have the career that I had.

"I always want to make things with people that I admire and I’ve always admired Ronnie."

Beckham and O'Sullivan appeared on the red carpet together at the Odeon in Leicester Square, London.

The world number one was joined by his stunning partner Laila Rouass at the event.

A camera crew was given behind the scenes access to film O'Sullivan as he won his seventh World Championship last year.

He opens up about his mental health battles and daily addictions in the doc.

The 47-year-old also admitted at the premiere that he fears he won't win another World Championship.
