Beckham welcomed by Chinese fans

David Beckham talks about his new role as a global ambassador for Chinese football at a news conference in Beijing.

The former England captain will attend league matches and visit clubs to "help educate young people" about getting involved in the sport.

Beckham's appointment was announced earlier this month and comes as Chinese football works to recover from a match-fixing scandal which led to dozens of top officials, players and referees being jailed or banned.
