Golden Falls: David Beckham Makes A Spectacular Slip As He Shows Children How To Take A Free-Kick

David Beckham has a new nickname - Golden Falls.

The 37-year-old made a spectacular fall in front of a group of bemused Chinese footballers as he continued his tour of China - many of whom managed to miss the action on their smart phones.

The superstar was dressed in a grey suit and black shoes - perhaps not the best choice of footwear - as he lined up to curve a ball into the goal in front of starstruck players from Wuhan Zall club in the Hubei province.

But it all went horribly wrong when he lost his balance and ended up flat on his Beck-side. But the Paris St Germain player managed to laugh off his fall.
