Beckham coy on ceremony role

David Beckham says he will have a part to play in the Olympic opening ceremony but says he cannot reveal any details.

The LA Galaxy midfielder states he is "proud" of his role in bringing the Games to London, and says he "can feel the excitement building" ahead of Friday's opening ceremony.

Beckham, who was left out of Stuart Pearce's Olympic football squad, had earlier appeared on stage in London alongside Muhammad Ali to present the the inaugural 'Generation Ali Beyond Sport' Award.
