His commitments as a football ambassador and potential Miami franchise owner have seen David Beckham traverse the globe as he endeavours to win over an uncertain Floridian public while promoting the game he loves in the Far East.
On Saturday, the former England captain’s travels took him to Singapore, where he greeted young fans at the Marina Bay Sands hotel during a football clinic with local athletes from SportsCare Singapore, Special Olympics and the Asean Para Games.
Beckham, 39, had flown east having been invited via the MBS Sands for Singapore corporate social responsibility programme, and he was on hand to gift them with a signed pair of his old Adidas Predator football boots.

The ex-Manchester United, Real Madrid and Los Angeles Galaxy winger looked typically dapper in a grey two-piece suit as he shook hands with athletes and delighted fans by squeezing in for a memorable snap.
Beckham, whose impressive beard growth gets bushier by the day, was attending during the build up to the Sands for Singapore Festival, which runs over a three day period from August 1 to 3 and generates much needed funds for home-grown charities.
His signed Predators – a trademark during his distinguished footballing career – were the final items to be gifted to the Celebrities Give Back to Singapore strand of the event.

The sporting icon also spent time chatting to those in attendance at the coastal resort before making one young fan’s day by kneeling by his side and wrapping an arm around the boy’s shoulders for a photo.
On Sunday, the jet setting star, who recently went to Brazil to film a documentary in the Amazon rainforest, sported an equally as dapper look while in Miami to talk business.
Beckham opted for a fetching grey suit on that occasion, where was discussing building support for his Miami football franchise’s stadium.

Beckham accessorised his look with a pair of sunglasses to protect himself from the beating rays but later took them off as he headed inside.
He was greeted outside the building and he looked delighted to be gearing up to do some more work on his upcoming Miami franchise.
