The Beckhams are enjoying a vacay in the sun with Elton, David and their sons Zachary, seven, and five-year-old Elijah.

Earlier this week, footballer David and Elton marked 25 years of friendship.

David, 43, took to Instagram to post a snap of himself and the legendary singer lounging on a boat in France.

The photo sees David showing off his toned bod as he put his arm around Elton, who wore a short-sleeved shirt emblazoned with fish patterns.

David captioned the pic: “Uncle Elton…. We have known each other now for 25 years .. Fun times with each other.”

A couple of hours earlier, Elton shared a picture with his followers showing himself, David and Victoria on the boat.

Elton is seen with his arms wrapped around fashion designer Victoria as she rested her leg on her hubby.

Elton wrote: “Winding down my summer holiday with these lovely people.”

The Beckhams and Sir Elton have been close for more than two decades and the Yellow Brick Road singer was due to perform at the couple’s wedding in 1999 before suffering a heart attack that prevented him from playing.

He later sang at one of the Beckham children’s christenings.
