'Game Changers' will also see Olympic hero Jessica Ennis-Hill and Paralympic wheelchair rugby captain Steve Brown play a role, while sprinter Darren Campbell and presenter Di Dougherty will serve as hosts.

Of his new role, Becks told The Sun: “It’s an ambition of mine to inspire more young people to take part in sport. I’m excited to be one of a great group of athletes contributing to 'Game Changers' and working with Sky, who have the passion to make it happen.”

The show will air in a 9am slot starting from 17 August.

Earlier this week, Becks was multiplied by six as he lent himself to a new advert for Sky Sports.
