Becks also spoke about the importance of encouraging kids to be healthy.

‘Competitiveness is really important in children's lives, it has to be fair. My boys go to a school which is very competitive, but at the same time encourages children,’ he said.

'It's vital that kids are healthy, fit and eat the right things.'

‘If you haven't been competitive from a young age, that can affect how you go on to act in later life. And it's vital that kids are healthy, fit and eat the right things.’

‘What I'm doing here is not just about encouraging people to be great sportsmen and women, it's about staying healthy in life.’

The football legend admitted that he would love one of his children to become a football player, adding ‘It might even be (daughter) Harper.’
