David Beckham - David Beckham Visits Sick Australian Kids

David Beckham has visited sick children in an Australian hospital.

The British soccer star - who last week spent time with underprivileged youngsters in the Philippines - took a trip to the Royal Melbourne Children's Hospital, where he spent an hour visiting young patients and their families.

Among those he met was 19-month-old Allegra Fewson-Ward, who is suffering from a bone infection, and her mother Jackie admitted she was hoping he had a "healing kiss".

She said: "I hope it helps with her healing, maybe he's got the healing kiss. I don't think she'll remember but certainly we'll keep reminding her of it."

The Los Angeles Galaxy player - who was in the country to play against soccer team Melbourne Victory - also met with doctors, one of whom was wearing an England shirt from the 1990s which he asked the sportsman to sign.

Commenting on the visit, David admitted it was a "good trip" and he was glad to put a "smile" on the faces of the children.

He told NineMSN: "It's one of the best things I love to do. I'm an ambassador for UNICEF and me and my wife have our own charities as well. Going to see the kids, going to see their smiles, giving them a smile, it's something that I do believe heals and gives them that little bit of happiness. It was a good trip.

"It's heart-wrenching. I don't know how the parents do it at times. It's an amazing hospital, it's beautiful. They're doing such great things, it's really incredible."
