  Beckham kick starts new computer game
Updated 22 November 2001, 22.38

David Beckham has launched a new career - in computer cyberspace. The England captain and Manchester United player is the star of his new computer game, called David Beckham Soccer.

It shows David as a 'virtual reality' footballer, and gamers can train with him, play football with him and use his soccer tips to get higher scores.

CBBC Newsround Online went along to hear what he had to say about it.


Exciting

Players can even change 'cyber Beckham's' hair every time he cuts it. He joked: "It's the best thing about the game."

Beckham said he had played the game and he was "not that bad".

"The most important thing for me is that it is going to be exciting for the children playing it," he said. "I hope it will also help players improve their game."

Spooky eyes

He said his wife, Spice Girl Victoria, had not tried it, but she had watched him playing the game.


It will compete with the Harry Potter game this Christmas but Beckham said he was not worried about taking on the boy wizard.

Beckham, wearing beige trousers and a brown jacket Victoria had bought him, said he enjoyed helping to make the game in the studio.

He had to wear special contact lenses to make his eyes look spooky in the adverts.
