David Beckham: "This epic journey will allow me to show the positive side of the game."

David Beckham is the star of a forthcoming BBC One documentary where he plays seven games in all seven continents around the world.

The ex-England captain joins communities who play football in some of the most challenging, remote and extreme locations on the planet.

"I've seen the transformational effect sport, in particular football, has on people's lives," the 40-year-old said.

"This epic journey will allow me to show the positive side of the game."

Beckham will explore the lives of those who struggle to make a living in environments that present a daily challenge as well as those who get to live the dream when they make it to the big leagues.

The journey ends where it all began for Beckham at Manchester United's ground Old Trafford, where he plays his final game with a host of football legends.
