Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel is already getting his hands dirty in his new role as club ambassador.

The 48-year-old Dane, who won five Premier League titles, three FA Cups and the Champions League during a trophy-laden eight-year spell at Old Trafford, will join the likes of Sir Bobby Charlton, Bryan Robson, Gary Neville and Andrew Cole in helping to promote the Red Devils.

His first duty was to greet America's First Lady Michelle Obama and former United team-mate David Beckham at the pre-Olympic games Let's Move for London event in Regents Park.
