David - who is a regular at LA Lakers basketball games - later took to his Facebook page to express his delight at the gift, posting a picture of himself grinning broadly as he carried the huge frame.

The Los Angeles Galaxy player also posted a picture of a food platter containing scrambled eggs, bacon and sausages, surrounded by party hats.

He wrote: ''Thank you to my amazing family for making my birthday so special!''

''Boys cooked me a birthday breakfast this morning!''

David later thanked his fans for all their well-wishes on his big day.

He wrote: ''Thank you all for your amazing messages! They mean so much to me. It's been a great day so far.''
