David Beckham gave a talk at the prestigious Harvard University in Massachusetts about his life and business ventures.
Beckham spoke to students about his football career with Manchester United, Real Madrid and LA Galaxy, his ownership of Inter Miami and his business interests away from the game where he made his name.
On Wednesday, the 48-year-old shared a variety of photos from his visit to Cambridge, near Boston, earlier this week and was clearly humbled by his opportunity to speak to the students on campus.
“Who would have thought the boy from East London would be speaking at Harvard,” Beckham wrote on Instagram with a crying with laughter emoji.
‘Great honor to spend time with Anita Elberse at Harvard Business School today, thanks to Anita and all the students.’

“Yes, you read that right: the legendary David Beckham was a guest speaker in my Harvard Business School class today,” she wrote.
“So great to hear him share his thoughts on topics such as his football career, his joint venture with Authentic Brands Group, and of course Lionel Messi and Inter Miami CF,” before ending the caption with the hashtag “#ProfessorBeckhamInTheHouse.”
Beckham has recently been in the spotlight with a new career-spanning documentary about his life dropping on Netflix.
It received mostly positive reviews, with the four-part series chronicling his rise from promising footballer to world star – as well as his marriage to Victoria and the highs and lows of their relationship.
