It’s a bird…It’s a plane…NO, it’s David Beckham!
Fans mobbed a Chinese University yesterday while trying to catch a glimpse of the soccer god himself, and ended up in a lot more pain then joy!
Shanghai police revealed that at least seven people were injured including- three police officers, two university security guards and two students.
Beckham voiced his sympathy via Facebook by posting-
“I had an incredible response from everyone at Shanghai Tonji University today, sorry I couldn’t get out on the pitch to see the teams but it was impossible to get past the massive crowds. I heard there were a few injuries, I hope the fans are OK and I wish them a speedy recovery. Love David x.”
The retired football megastar had arranged to meet the members of the universities football team, but due to the chaotic crowd of nearly 1,000 was unable to do so.
The event in turn was canceled and the poor team of aspiring footballers had to put their dreams of first-hand interaction with Beckham on hold. Sigh…
