David Beckham appears on Sesame Street

The cameo by the footballer, who plays for LA Galaxy, saw him teach the character Elmo how to spell the word 'persistent’.

The 33-year-old joined a string of stars, including actress Jessica Alba, model Heidi Klum, and actor Jack Black, to launch the popular show’s 39th season. He also swapped a few football tips with the red furry monster.

The episode will be screened in the US on 11 August.

A source close to the player David said: “David has always been a huge fan of the show. When he was a kid he watched it, like a lot of people, and knew all the characters. He was more than happy to go on.

"He loves dealing with kids and thought it would be a great way to get through to them. He had a great time filming it, a real laugh."

The player is not usually known for his literacy skills.

When asked if he was a volatile player, he famously replied: "Well, I can play in the centre, on the right and occasionally on the left side"

In another slip he told an interviewer: "My parents have been there for me, ever since I was about 7."
