Football superstar David Beckham stunned fans in London on Monday when he made a surprise appearance at a shopping centre - and snuck into pictures they were having taken.

The sportsman shocked devotees when he unexpectedly stepped into a photo booth at the Westfield Stratford City mall - where families were taking part in a publicity drive ahead of the Olympics.

Beckham embraced his fans and posed for photos for adidas' Take The Stage campaign showcasing both the 2012 event and sporting talent across the UK.

"It was a unique experience for me and the people who took part and there were some great reactions when we surprised them in the photo booth," the LA Galaxy star said.

"I always love coming back to London and the activity was a great opportunity for me to get involved and get behind Team GB."

Reactions from those caught off-guard ranged from tears of delight to giggles of sheer disbelief, before everyone made the most of their chance to get a snap with Becks.
