England’s official football ambassador David Beckham is going to make himself available to answer questions from fans on the global website Yahoo! next week.
Over 90 minutes next Wednesday an interview with Beckham will be beamed live via video linkup on Yahoo Answers to England and 20 other countries worldwide, and all the questions will be asked by the fans themselves.
Yahoo is asking it’s 600 million users around the world to think of the one question they would like to ask the footballing icon and to submit them live during the event through Yahoo! Mail, Beckham’s Facebook page, the Yahoo! World Football Facebook page and Twitter.
Beckham said: “It’s always great interacting with fans, but I’ve never been part of an interview quite like this – being able to take questions direct from people in 18 different countries across five continents. It’s definitely a first for me.”
Earlier this month, David Beckham signed a global sponsorship deal to serve as Yahoo!’s Global Sports Ambassador. The partnership brings together the world’s largest online media company and the world’s most iconic sports star to offer exclusive content only found on Yahoo! for Yahoo!’s coverage of the World Cup and the 2010/11 football season.

He is the perfect partner for us because he is relevant to our users globally, and this is their chance to get up close to him like never before.”
