Legendary English footballer David Beckham was in Guangzhou this week to promote the opening of a new Adidas store and to visit young football fans at the Zhixin Middle and High School, according to reports.

The former captain of the English national team, Beckham arrived yesterday (June 27) and spent this morning taking part in an event to promote youth football at the Zhixin Middle and High School. The event was co-organized by Adidas and the Guangzhou Education Bureau.

According to NewsGD, Beckham is scheduled to leave Guangzhou this afternoon.

Beckham’s visit to the PRD was, understandably, a pretty big deal and it didn’t take long for video footage and photographs to start ‘blowing up’ WeChat. To celebrate the best of Beckham’s two-day trip, we have browsed the internet and social media to create this photo recap for your viewing enjoyment:

Gotta keep the sponsors happy with a little in-store photo shoot.

No celebrity trip to China is complete without a couple of unsolicited selfies.

Bend it Beckham, bend it!

Cameras are never far behind, or in front, of Mr. Beckham.

At 41-years-old, Beckham has still got it (#watchoutvictoria).
