David Beckham thinks London Olympics will be better than the Beijing Games

David Beckham believes the London Olympics in 2012 will be even better than what we´ve seen at the Beijing Games.

Becks arrived in the Chinese capital on Saturday to join up with Jimmy Page and Leona Lewis ahead of their starring roles in London's slot in Sunday's Games' closing ceremony.

"I'm an East End boy and I'm proud that it's happening in London. I was very proud to involved in the first place bringing it back to England and to London. It's going to generate so much interest in sport and kids are already getting excited about it.

"We have seen what the Chinese have done here and I'm sure we will better that, without a doubt."

He added: "I was lucky enough to be back in London last week and had a lot of spare time in the hotel so I was watching the Olympics all day. It was great to see, the cycling was so impressive and it was great for Chris Hoy to have achieved what he did.

"It's nice to see many people getting so emotional about winning medals and it makes you proud to be British.

"It has been a great Games so far."
