MADRID — A Spanish police officer did not see the funny side of a prank by TV commentators who joked she was licking her lips watching David Beckham playing.

The officer has now been paid EUR 2,000 in compensation by the Antena 3 network after two commentators joked about the way she watched the Real Madrid and England star.

The officer was on duty during a game between Real Madrid and Seville at the time of the incident.

The TV channel ran a clip which showed the woman looking on as Beckham set up a corner kick, with a subtitle which read: 'Under the scrutiny of the female section of the police after sizing him up and refraining from drooling'.

A judge in Seville ruled the images offended the officer's dignity and ordered the TV channel to pay damages.
