David Beckham is a big draw no matter where he goes in the world - but sadly a personal appearance from the former Manchester United ace ended in disaster when he visited China this week.

At least five people were injured when a stampede rushed to greet the now retired superstar when he visited Shanghai’s Tongji University.

Beckham later issued a statement on his Sina Weibo account saying:

"I had an incredible response from everyone at Shanghai Tongji University today, sorry I couldn’t get out on the pitch to see the teams It was impossible to get through the massive crowds. I heard there were a few injuries, hope the fans are ok and I wish them a speed recovery.
