David Beckham has given a talk at the prestigious Harvard University in Massachusetts about his life and his business forays.

Beckham spoke to students about his soccer career with Manchester United, Real Madrid and LA Galaxy, his ownership of Inter Miami and his business interests away from the game where he made his name.

The 48-year-old shared an array of photos on Wednesday from his visit to Cambridge, near Boston, earlier in the week and was clearly left humbled by his opportunity to speak to the students on campus.

‘Who would have thought the boy from east London talks at Harvard,’ Beckham wrote on Instagram with a crying-with-laughter emoji.

‘Huge honor today spending time with Anita Elberse at Harvard Business School, thank you to Anita and all the students.’

‘Yes, you’re seeing it right: the legendary David Beckham was a guest speaker in my Harvard Business School class today,’ she wrote.

‘So amazing to hear him share his thoughts on topics such as his soccer career, his joint venture with Authentic Brands Group, and of course Lionel Messi and Inter Miami CF’ before ending the caption with a hashtag ‘#ProfessorBeckhamInTheHouse’.

Beckham has been in the limelight recently with a new career-spanning documentary about his life dropping on Netflix.
