As a national sporting icon, David Beckham is an inspirational role model to millions of young people from all backgrounds and will help to use the power of sport to change lives through the successful Sky Sports Living for Sport initiative. Now in its tenth year, this free initiative uses the life-changing stories and expertise of athlete mentors to inspire young people to learn new skills and improve their lives.
