“It is impossible to think about the success of the London 2012 Games and not reflect upon the extraordinary commitment made by David Beckham.  At every stage of the London 2012 journey – from the bid phase, to planning for the Games, to the torch relay and the unforgettable summer of sport in 2012, David was a constant source of support and inspiration.

David is immensely proud of his Northeast London roots and readily understood the role the Games could play in transforming the lives of young people.  His impact across football – and all of sport – will be felt for generations to come.”
