UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador David Beckham recently visited Nepal after kicking off his epic world tour for a new BBC documentary.

Beckham visited Padam Jyoti School, in Bhaktapur, where classes are being held in temporary sheds after the April 25 earthquake.

In David’s new BBC show, entitled Love Of The Game, he will visit seven countries and play seven games with the locals in each region.

In this show he will explore the impact of the sport in all walks of life.

The former England captain later played soccer with the children at an open courtyard surrounded by old temples.

He even let them paint his face crimson, which has a symbolic bearing for the nation of Nepal.


The sports star also wore tilaka, on his forehead, and a Nepali Dhaka topi (hat).

Thousands of people had descended on the square to catch a glimpse of Beckham.

He was put through his paces by the delighted students of the school.

After his globe-trotting ways David will end the journey at Old Trafford in Manchester, where his career began.

He even tried his hand at Table Tennis.

David had arrived at the venue through an auto-rickshaw instead of a car.

A major earthquake struck Nepal on 25 April this year killing 9,000 people and injuring more than 23,000.

On seeing David, one Nepalese student said: “This is the best day of my life. I am so, so happy.”
