A famous foreigner

Describe a famous foreigner you particularly admire.

You should say:

and explain how he/she contributes to society.

 

 

 

 

 

 
Talking about a famous foreign, I want to talk about David Beckham, one of the most famous football players in the world. He’s extremely well-known, and I believe that everyone around the world could recognize him if they saw him on TV or in a newspaper.

 

First of all, in the 1990s, Beckham used to be a very successful athlete. He used to play for Manchester United(曼彻斯特联队=曼联), and he won the Premier League(超级联赛) 6 times with this club. They even won the European Champions League, which is the most prestigious club competition in the world. Everyone praised his ability to kick the ball and deliver amazing passes. Goalkeepers(守门员) always feared his free kicks(任意球), and he even played for AC Milan, which is one of the strongest teams in Europe. A movie entitled “Bend it like Beckham” was even made. He is a role model for many young people.

 

Beckham got married to a former band member of the famous “Spice Girls”. His wife’s name is Victoria and she is an attractive singer who somehow managed to bring Beckham to another level of fame. The two of them are the constant center of attention of the press. Paparazzi follow them on a daily basis, and I believe that there is not a day without an article published about Beck and his wife. They seem so happy. You know, so many celebrities divorce, but they’ve been together for a long time and have several cute children.

 

I think that his wife played a major role in his career. David is a good-looking man, and he learned how to make full use of his name and appearance. Beckham advertises for many famous brands. He models; he acts; he publishes books too. In 2002, he launched his debut book named “My side”, which was a really hit! He’s a real businessman.

 

When he played for Real Madrid(皇家马德里队), his name brought millions of dollars to the club because fans from all over the world bought jerseys with his name printed on the back. I don’t know when he will put an end to his football career, but I am positive that he will keep busy in Hollywood and on TV for a long time after he retires.

 

Maybe it is easy to find someone who is successful in one field, but it is definitely hard to find someone who is excellent in many fields. And it is the hardest ever to make one’s own name become a fashion, a trademark and a symbol. And obviously, David is one of them.
