The tears flowed – but so, too, did the adoration.
In the end, David Beckham's final game as a professional soccer player wrapped up as if it were scripted on Saturday, with the former England captain lifting a trophy to roars from a crowd in Paris.
The 38-year-old, who announced his retirement last week, broke down in tears as he was substituted in the final moments of Paris Saint-Germain's 3-1 win over Brest. But he was soon laughing again as the crowd chanted his name and he was thrown into the air by his teammates.

David Beckham is retiring from soccer after this season, ending a career in which he became a global superstar since starting his career at Manchester United.
The 38-year-old Englishman recently won a league title in a fourth country with Paris Saint-Germain. He said in a statement Friday he is "thankful to PSG for giving me the opportunity to continue but I feel now is the right time to finish my career, playing at the highest level."
Beckham has two games left this season with PSG. He also played for Real Madrid and the Los Angeles Galaxy, winning titles with both those clubs as well as with United.

The soccer star, in a slick suit and tie, was introduced at a press conference at the club's Parc des Princes stadium on Thursday morning.

Victoria Beckham has managed to balance a successful fashion career with her family life – but not without some criticism ... from her children!
In the March issue of Elle UK, the 38-year-old mother of four says her cooking skills don't align with her design talents and her brood will attest to that.
"You know what they say to me, because I'm not the best cook, although I try really hard? They always say to me: 'Mummy, we know that the main ingredient in what you make is love,'" she says.
