David Beckham explores Amazon rainforest by bike

Football legend rides through Brazil for TV documentary

DAVID Beckham will be seen riding through the Amazon rainforest in a new BBC documentary.

'David Beckham into the Unknown' follows the football legend as he explores Rio de Janeiro ahead of the World Cup, before travelling to Manaus, in the heart of the rainforest, where England is set to play Italy next month.

A picture released ahead of the documentary shows the star posing on a muddy trail with a Triumph Scrambler.

The programme is to be broadcast on BBC One in June, to coincide with the start of the World Cup.

Helen Jackson, MD of BBC Worldwide content, said: 'This is an unforgettable documentary set in the heart of the dense Amazon rainforest following David Beckham.'
