David Beckham records heartfelt video message to Manchester | One Love concert

Manchester United legend David Beckham left a touching message for Manchester and the 22 victims of the London attacks at an Ariana Grande concert two weeks ago. 

His video was played at the One Love concert in Manchester which saw 50,000 fans in attendance.

“Sorry I can’t be there this evening,” Beckham said.

“Manchester is a place that was my home for many years. The people are some of the most special I have ever met in my life. It’s somewhere that means so much to me.

“As a father, what happened made me truly sad and it’s a day we will never forget. I’m proud of everyone there today, everyone in the crowd and all the artists.

“Tonight is about remembering those that suffered so much on that night, but also celebrating the spirit of this great city. It’s a place we all love. Have a good evening.”
