EVEN the best in the world have their off days, and the usually suave David Beckham is no exception.

The former England captain was in China in his capacity as a soccer ambassador when he slipped and fell while taking a free kick.

The soccer superstar was visiting the Wuhan Zall club in the Hubei province when the embarrassing slip took place.

Beckham, dressed smartly in a suit and tie, lined up to take a free kick in front of the young players when he slipped on the wet grass just as the ball came at him.

He took his stumble in good spirits however - he smiled and joked with the players as he got up off the ground.

Beckham was mobbed on his arrival to China where he is to encourage further participation in the sport.
