David Beckham, 37, dropped to the ground during his Far East tour as part of his five-day ambassadorial visit to China.

The football superstar was dressed in a luxury grey suit and black shoes as he lined up to swing in a free-kick in front of starstruck players from Wuhan Zall club in the Hubei province.

But it all went horribly wrong when the midfielder lost his balance and ended up flat on his back – although he appeared to take the fall in good spirits.

As David Beckham ran up to curve a ball into the top corner of the goal he took a terrible fall and slipped up into the air before crashing into the ground.

“It is something that we are very passionate about changing the mentality of the league and bringing youngsters through and making this league as popular as some of the big leagues in the world.”

David Beckham continued: “I’ve always been a fan of because I think the players are very talented and they are very passionate.
