Seven people injured in stampede over David Beckham in China
Several people have been left seriously injured in China where the legendary footballer made a personal appearance.
A personal appearance at a Shanghai university by football legend David Beckham has left seven people injured.
The now-retired star is in China as part of his role as ambassador to the Chinese Super League, and thousands more fans showed up to catch a glimpse of him than anticipated. As a result, there are several injuries being reported, seven of which are serious; including university guars, police and students.
Witnesses report than 1,000 lunged towards Mr Beckham and a stampede ensued.
"We didn't expect so many people showing up here. Too many fans of Beckham," explained Chu Dan, a Tongji University player.
The event was subsequently cancelled and Shanghai police said they would investigate the incident.
