After a five-day tour of China, David Beckham left Beijing on Sunday and should be back in Paris early on Monday morning.

To celebrate his appointment as Chinese football ambassador, David Beckham spent five days in China which took him from Beijing to Wuhan, via Qingdao. During his trip, the Parisian midfielder met with football club directors, professional players, children and fans. Now he is on his way back to Paris to prepare for Friday's Ligue 1 match against Montpellier and then the huge clash against Barcelona in two weeks time: "Honestly, I have loved this trip to China, from my welcome to the cities I've visited has all been fantastic, but I have to admit, I'm looking forward to swapping the suit for my football boots again," he told us before jetting home. He has spent the last few days staying in shape in the hotel gymnasium.
