Beckham launched his Bodywear collection for H&M in 2012, with new styles, fabrics and patterns following in the years since, and the retailer said the addition of swimwear was "a natural progression".

H&M said: "As with all previous ranges, the focus of the swimwear collection is on fit, performance and comfort and offers a fresh update on classic masculine style."

The new range of boardshorts, swim shorts and trunks will launch in selected stores and online from May 22.
