Becks plays with GB Paralympic team

David Beckham

Blindfolded David Beckham has been put through his paces by ParalympicsGB Beijing five-a-side football captain Dave Clarke.

Beckham, who earlier this week lifted the MLS Cup with LA Galaxy, is the London 2012 Paralympic Games Ambassador .

Beckham explained: “It has been a fantastic experience training with the ParalympicsGB five-a-side football squad as I have never experienced or participated in blind football before.

“They are a real testament to the quality of our Paralympic athletes. The character and determination they show by doing this every single day, makes me proud to be British.”

Clarke added: “Spending a day training with a world football icon like David Beckham was a great experience we will never forget.

“This opportunity allowed our squad to showcase the skills and levels of concentration needed to participate in blind football at an elite level. With David’s support and through the Sainsbury’s Million Kids Challenge, we are encouraging much of the UK to experience Paralympic Sports for the first time.”
