David Beckham is China's new football ambassador being paid a small fortune to lend his clean-cut image to the Chinese league, which is riddled with corruption and foul play. But instead of demonstrating the virtues of good conduct, David Beckham sparked a stampede in Shanghai that left seven people injured - and forced his visit to be cancelled. Fans stormed the gates of a university football stadium to catch a glimpse of the former England football star on his arrival. A protective wall of security guards and police officers was flattened as Beckham-mania gripped the crowd of 1,000 students and youngsters. One female police officer was carried away with blood streaming from a face wound while another male officer was pictured lying on the ground unconscious with a bloody head wound.
