David Beckham, rainforest explorer?

Footballer films documentary about Amazon rainforest

Footballer. Designer. ELLE cover star. Loving husband and father-of-four. And now, rainforest explorer. Is there anything David Beckham can’t do? In a word, no. Becks has added another string to his bow after undertaking a two-week expedition to the Amazon for an upcoming BBC documentary about Brazil.

This as-yet-unnamed film, directed by Anthony Mandler, will be aired on BBC One in June to coincide with its coverage of the World Cup. The 90-minute documentary will follow David’s jungle adventures, from camping to cooking, in a bid to exhibit the country’s natural beauty.
