PSG midfielder Beckham shows tattoo on China ambassadorial visit

David Beckham absolutely loved his recent trip to China to help promote the Chinese Super League.

The 37-year old Paris Saint-Germain has an ambassadorial role in China and says he thoroughly enjoyed his visit to Asia and the world's most populous country.

"Honestly, I loved this trip to China. Especially the welcome I received and the cities visited," the former Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan and LA Galaxy man told PSG's official website.

"I must admit that I'm itching to put aside the suit and put my boots on again," Beckham added.

During his visit, Beckham lifted his shirt to show students at Peking University a tattoo down the left side of his body which translates roughly to 'Life and death are determined by fate, rank and riches decreed by Heaven'. The tattoo is written in hanzi, or Chinese characters, and was inked in 2008.
