Milan - An Italian television channel has apologized for a prank in which a female presenter attempted to grab David Beckham between the legs.

The AC Milan midfielder was visibly angered when Elena Di Cioccio, who fronts the popular show "Le Iene" (The Hyenas) on Italia Uno, made her move while the football player was being interviewed by another person Wednesday.

Security immediately hustled the 34-year-old Beckham into a nearby hotel.

Beckham is on loan at Milan from the Los Angeles Galaxy.

He has started all three league matches in 2010 and is expected to play in Sunday's derby against Inter Milan.

Beckham's spokesman Simon Oliveira says he has "no issue with it. It did surprise him at the time, but David saw it for what it was - harmless fun."
