SUNNYVALE, Calif. (AP) — Yahoo! has signed David Beckham to be part of its World Cup coverage.
Beckham will help promote the site, which will feature a David Beckham channel with commentary on soccer's biggest event. After the World Cup, at least 75 fans will be invited to pose questions to Beckham.
The injured English star is out of the World Cup after tearing his left Achilles' tendon. He is in South Africa with the squad and was sent last week to scout the American team, England's first opponent on Saturday.
Beckham says the Yahoo! deal will allow him to "interact one-on-one with as many football fans as possible."
