David Beckham who is suffering from obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) has admitted that it is "tiring".
The condition compels the sufferer to undertake particular rituals and repetitive routines to stave off anxiety.
"It's not something I worry about. I've accepted it. I'm just very obsessive with certain things. Everything has to be in order. That's the way it is," Contactmusic quoted him as telling Esquire magazine.
"Walk into a hotel room and before I can get settled I have to unpack, everything has to be perfect; the magazines the right way, the drawers in the right way, or whatever. It is, it's tiring. But it's more tiring if it's not done the right way.
The footie star, who is a self confessed lover of red wine, insists that he doesn't get drunk very often.
And although he admits to a "love" of red wine, the footie star insists he doesn't get drunk very often.
"I let my hair down with my family, the children, my close friends," he said.
"I like - love actually - a glass of good red wine. When was I last drunk? At the weekend. I had the day off so I had a couple of glasses of red wine. But I'm not a big drinker. I don't do things excessively," he added.
