Former England football captain David Beckham has announced that he will be taking on a role as Invictus Games Ambassador.
In a post on his personal Instagram page, David said:
“I’ve been lucky enough to meet and work with many serving, veteran and wounded British armed forces personnel over the years and I’ve been humbled by the courage, resilience and spirit shown by each and every one of them.”
“So, I’m incredibly proud to announce I will be an Ambassador for this year’s Invictus Games in Sydney,” he wrote.
“The entire Invictus Games team, led by the Duke of Sussex, has achieved remarkable things in such a short space of time, using sport as a powerful force to rehabilitate and unite and I can’t wait to be part of the energy and the excellence of the Games this year.” (Forces.net News, 20th August 2018)
