Lending his star power to an amazing cause, David Beckham posed for press at Sky Studios in Isleworth, England on Tuesday (November 5).

The former soccer stud joined Bradley Wiggins, Melvyn Bragg and Chris Hoy at the launch of Sky Academy, which sets an initiative using media and sports to give up to one million kids develop their skills and confidence.

"Mentors and role models have always been important to me," David (a Sky Academy Ambassador) told Sky News.

“When I was young, they helped me to believe in myself and gave me the confidence to follow my dreams. That’s what Sky Academy will do and I’m excited to be a part of it."
