David Beckham loves to check in with his fans. And we love him for it! He's written the latest installment of his blog, and this one touches upon his role in the closing ceremonies at the Olympics and clears up those car crash rumors.
"Hi everyone, I was really honored to be part of the handover ceremony on Sunday in Beijing. I'm a keen supporter of the Olympics coming to London; it will have an incredible impact on the East End of London and the British will embrace the event and show how much passion they have for sport. As I've said many times, we deserve a global event on this scale in our country.
"The Beijing Olympics were about the great sporting moments and the Great Britain team exceeded all expectations. To finish fourth in the medal table and take home so many medals was amazing and they can all be very proud of themselves. This sort of success always encourages kids to take up sport and do well and many are already getting ready for 2012 and want to be involved in it. I was also lucky to see the US play Spain in the basketball final, I'm pleased for my friend Kobe [Bryant] who wanted so much to win gold for his country. I was impressed with Spain, they never gave up, but the US probably deserved to win over the length of the tournament.
"On another note, I know many of you would have been concerned to read about a supposed car crash involving me and Victoria. I want to assure everyone there never was any crash at any time; our car had been dented many days before whilst vacant in a car park."
