David Beckham Honors Soccer Legend Pele

David Beckham dines at Nobu after leaving Gotham Hall in New York City on Wednesday.

The 32-year-old soccer stud had attended the event sponsored by Major League Soccer (MLS) Works/World Soccer Foundation/Harlem Youth Soccer Street to Fields.

Becks had the honor of presenting the Lifetime Achievement Award to 67-year-old Brazilian soccer legend Pele (born Edson Arantes Do Nascimento).

“For me to be here to present this to the greatest sportsmen of all time, I feel particularly honored,” the Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder said. “This absolutely is a highlight moment for me.”

Added Becks, “Soccer is a magical game. I’m very confident fans here in America will continue to see that. There’s no reason they can’t be as passionate about soccer as they are about every other sport here.”
