David Beckham had the honor of bringing the Olympic Flame from Athens, Greece, to England yesterday. He participated in a welcome ceremony in his home country that marks the beginning of a 70-day relay for the flame before the start of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. The flame has since moved into the hands of three-time Olympic sailing champion Ben Ainslie, who is the first of 8,000 torchbearers to handle the flame before it reaches London for the opening ceremonies. David spent a few days in Greece ahead of his flame duties and met up with a group of children at an Athens school.
