David Beckham Apologizes For Triggering Shanghai Stampede
David Beckham has been traveling through China as an ambassador for the Chinese Super League over the past few days, making appearances and greeting fans, but today his friendly visit took a serious turn. Thousands gathered to see David as he arrived at Tongji University in Shanghai, causing a stampede, which injured several people. David was forced to cut his appearance short due to the crowds and later took to his Facebook page to apologize for the chaos. David wrote, "I had an incredible response from everyone at Shanghai TongJi University today, sorry I couldn't get out on the pitch to see the teams but it was impossible to get through the massive crowds. I heard there were a few injuries, I hope the fans are ok and I wish them a speedy recovery. Love David."
While David has been solo for the past few days, his wife, Victoria Beckham, is getting ready to join him overseas. She shared a snap of her packing progress on Instagram this morning, writing, "Started packing for China trip!"
