David Beckham may not return to U.S. very soon because he has promised his ill father that he would stay for "as long as it takes".
has vowed to remain at his sick father's bedside for "as long as it takes". The Los Angeles Galaxy soccer star - who made a 6,000-mile dash back to England on Thursday (27.09.07) after being told dad Ted had suffered a heart attack - has been praying for the 59-year-old's speedy recovery.

A source close to David - who has been keeping a vigil at the London Chest Hospital with sisters Lynne and Joanne - said: "David and his sisters are devastated and desperately worried about Ted. They are hoping and praying he will pull through. He is planning on staying at Ted's side for as long as it takes."

David's wife is currently working in Japan but was set to fly to the UK on Friday (28.09.07), while Ted's ex-wife Sandra is in Los Angeles looking after David and Victoria's three young sons.

Ted was rushed to hospital on Wednesday (26.09.07) after suffering chest pains at home. Sources claim he died in the ambulance on the way to London's Whipps Cross Hospital but was resuscitated by paramedics. He was later transferred to the London Chest Hospital, where he is still being cared for. A hospital spokesman said Ted was in a "stable condition".
