David Beckham, a former Manchester United and Real Madrid player, has been named the face of the Qatar World Cup, which will take place next month in a £150 million deal.

The former England captain, 46, agreed to become the country’s ambassador for a fee of £15 million per year for the next decade.

“David believes in Qatar’s commitment to progress and that the World Cup — the first to be held in the Arab world — can effect significant positive change,” a source told the Sun UK.

“He strongly believes in the power of football to bridge differences but, crucially, has seen the progress on issues that matter.”

“As we reach the one year to go point he will join the wider football community that is coming together for the World Cup 2022 and he’s looking forward to what he thinks will be a great tournament.”
