Former Manchester United and England footballer David Beckham will conduct a book signing with a difference today when he signs the Facebook walls of fans across the globe.

Signing: The event will be live on Facebook at 3pm

The partnership with Facebook will see Beckham take part in a live Q&A in a specially created ‘digital stadium’, hosted by UK sports presenter Jake Humphrey.
