Former England captain David Beckham has spoken of his pride at winning the 2018 UEFA President's Award.
The 43-year-old was recognised by UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin due to his illustrious career and role in promoting the game in "every corner of the planet".
Beckham, who won 115 caps for the Three Lions, picked up the award at the UEFA Champions League group stage draw ceremony in Monaco on Thursday.
"It's amazing to be up there with some of the best," the former Manchester United star told the audience. "So I'm very honoured, honoured to be here, to be part of such a special event.
"I've been lucky to have played with some of the biggest clubs with some of the best players in the best teams, under some of the greatest managers."
Ceferin added: "We all followed David's career, we know he is a great player. But it is more than that - he uses football to help disadvantaged children around the world. He was the obvious candidate."
