David Beckham was sharing his ball skills with Chinese school children this week, when he took time out to visit Zhixin High School in Guangzhou city, south China's Guangdong province.
The football ace and father of four, 41, was supporting a campaign by Adidas, which aims to improve the country's sport sector.
London-based David gave the youngsters an invaluable experience and their faces lit up with the opportunity to share the pitch with an international professional.
Former England captain David, a long-time Adidas representative, opened a new store in Guangzhou on Monday and went on to join 30 students at the local primary school.
He was representing the brand in a black and white T-shirt with the logo emblazoned on the front, while his tiny counterparts all wore brand new Adidas kits.
China's government is currently seeking to transform the country's sports sector into a 5 trillion-yuan ($752 billion) business by 2025.
