The 35-year-old former Spice Girl could only talk by phone to David, who was returning home to Los Angeles after recuperating at their mansion in Hertfordshire following ankle surgery. "It was upsetting for them both. Victoria burst into tears when she realised they wouldn't even be able to say 'hi' at the airport," the Sun quoted a source as saying.
"This is the life they lead - their jobs mean they have to travel all over the world at short notice," added the insider. The couple will be reunited when Posh flies home on Friday.
