David Beckham plays football with children affected by devastating Nepal earthquake


David Beckham played football with Nepalese children in a city which was devastated by April's earthquake.

The former England captain visited a school in Bhaktapur to kick a ball around with youngsters.

Classes at the Shree Padma Higher Secondary School are currently being held in sheds after the tremor seven months ago.

Beckham, who was in Nepal to shoot part of a documentary, also took the time to chat with students in their classrooms.

One student said: "This is the best day of my life. I am so, so happy."

The earthquake took place on 25 April this year killing 9,000 people and injuring more than 23,000.

It triggered an avalanche on Mount Everest which claimed 19 lives, making it the deadliest day in the mountain's history.

Hundreds of fans gathered to watch, and police used batons to control the crowd.
