The interior minister of Macedonia has promised to return the car she is driving to David Beckham, if it is proven to have been stolen from him.

Gordana Jankulovska told the BBC there was no confirmation that the BMW X5 car had belonged to the football star.

The car was impounded by the Macedonian police after being shipped from Greece.

Beckham's car disappeared last year in Madrid. Macedonian press reports linked it to the minister, although Beckham's had a different colour.

"This car changed a number of owners before and some of the numbers were changed in an illegal way. It is impossible to have a final confirmation that this is the car", Ms Jankulovska told the BBC's Europe Today programme on Wednesday.

Ms Jankulovska says it is quite legal for her to use the car
The car, valued at 75,000 ($145,000), became property of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia after judicial procedures concluded it had been illegally imported into the country and no owner had claimed it.

"If no owner claims the property, the car can be auctioned or kept for state use", Ms Jankulovska explained.

She told B92 radio in Belgrade that she was a fan of Beckham and would like to meet him if it turned out that the car belonged to him.

Err... Beckham's car disappeared. A car which may or may not be the same turned up in Macedonia driven by a Government minister.

What it has to do with Eurovision, I have no idea!

Gus,

We have a news and current affairs section, it CAN be nothing to do with Jeremy Vine, and nothing to do with Radio 2.

The car was returned - complete with what the police described as an antique walking stick, on the back seat.
Davo was said to be pleased, that both his car and wife were safe
