Samuel L Jackson has shot down reports of an "awkward" atmosphere between him and Victora Beckham at Wimbledon.

The Pulp Fiction star was sitting next to Posh Spice and her husband David Beckham in the royal box during the men's final between Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer at the British tennis championship.

A Vine clip posted online with the caption "This was awkward" showed a break in play when Victoria shifted in her seat while Sam Jackson scratched his leg and both gazed silently in opposite directions.

But the six seconds were clearly an exception to the rest of the afternoon, as other photographs show David and Victoria chatting happily to the Star Wars actor.

Samuel tweeted: "Lotta Bull**** goin' round, I had a ball sitting next to @victoriabeckham at Wimbledon yesterday! Truly Lovely!STFU!!"
