David Beckham Left Out Of Olympic British Football Team

The star has not been picked to compete in the sporting event...

David Beckham has revealed that he has been left out of the British football team at the London 2012 Olympic Games - despite being an ambassador for the event.

The LA Galaxy footballer has told Sky Sports News that he will not feature in Stuart Pearce's final 18-man squad, stating that he did not make the team after being in the manager's 35-man provisional line up.

Becks explained: "I would have been honoured to have been part of this unique Team GB squad. Naturally I am very disappointed.

"There will be no bigger supporter of the team than me. And like everyone, I will be hoping they can win gold."

The British team is only allowed to have three players over the age of 23, with reports suggesting Ryan Giggs, Craig Bellamy and Micah Richards have been selected.

While David has missed out on a place in the British team, his wife Victoria Beckham could feature in the closing ceremony, with the rest of the Spice Girls apparently trying to persuade her to join them on stage on 12th August.

A source told The Daily Mail: "They would have a few weeks to rehearse. This is a serious proposition, Mel B has been bombarding Victoria with calls - she's the sticking point. All the other girls want to do it. Victoria is extremely reluctant."

Earlier this week, the Wannabe girlband reunited for the launch of their new musical Viva Forever in London.
