This should probably have its own thread. More news in DM.

I’m a celebrity, get me in here! David Beckham and his best friend prove to be forest fans as they meet tribe deep in the Brazilian jungle

Former footballer David Beckham has paid a visit to the Yanomami tribe in Brazil as part of a new TV documentary.
The 38-year-old football icon was joined by one of his closest friends Dave Gardner on a trip to the Brazilian jungle to film a special documentary, which follows the friends exploring and experiencing the isolation of the Brazilian rainforest.

David and his friends travelled over 5,000 miles from London to South America, to experience life in the Amazon rainforest to discover the 'real Brazil'.

David, who has participated in a variety of charity projects since officially retiring from football, visited the Yanomami tribe in the run-up to the 2014 World Cup, to meet Davi Kopenawa, who is known as the ‘Dalai Lama of the Rainforest’.

While filming the documentary, Beckham visited the Yanomami territory and asked Davi for permission to enter the reserve. Beckham and Davi talked about the problems tribes like the Yanomami face, especially the illegal gold-mining on their land.

Dario Yawarioma Yanomami, son of Davi and a coordinator of the Yanomami association, Hutukara told Globo news:

‘We liked David’s visit a lot because he was very interested in the problems in the Yanomami reserve. He saw that there are many threats to the environment and to our culture. He showed he was concerned about the Yanomami people.’

Davi is the first-ever Yanomami shaman to have published a book, ‘The Falling Sky: Words of a Yanomami Shaman’, written in collaboration with anthropologist and friend Bruce Albert, which is a unique account of his life story.

In a review published last weekend in the US journal Truthout, Survival International’s Director Stephen Corry states that Davi Kopenawa’s book ‘deserves to become one of the most important books of our time.’

The Beckham Documentary, which is currently its working title, will air on BBC One in the UK this June and will be shown by BBC Worldwide at the MipTV 2014 international TV sales festival this April.

No idea why they've made him do this. Pointless.

I also think it's pointless, but so is half of the things that he has done post football. At least it's not as pointless as parading around in his underwear.

I think for most people the idea of the metrosexual Beckham rules and sometimes while talking to acquaintances they laugh him off "he must be gay, he`s a pussy" blah blah bullshit, as if being gay means not being brave but anyway you know what I`m talking about... he`s always had this "reputation" and although times have changed that image has remained so I think he took the chance immediately to show his "manly" side, it`s a good PR move and come on going into the wild with your mates on your bike, what can be more amazing than that.

PS: By the amount of times I have used "" I realise it may all seam silly but seriously it is not, I was trying to get guys to talk about taking care of themselves and then came the hurl of stupid things they used to say about him all those years ago, no force is greater than prejudice.

Haha, I love the bandana shot! It seems like such a natural photo.

When is this coming out? I have hopes that it will be a bit like a condensed version of the Long Way trips with Ewan McGregor, a real insight into such an adventure!
