David Beckham - David Beckham's Sons Inspired By Olympics

David Beckham's sons were inspired by the London Olympics.

The soccer star - who was an ambassador for the 2012 Games - felt ''overwhelmed with pride'' as he joined Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, nine, and seven-year-old Cruz at a number of events and is thrilled the spectacle has inspired the youngster to try their hands at new sports.

He wrote for the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''My pride reached new heights when I took part in the 2012 opening ceremony then when I took my three boys to watch some of the events - like Tom Daley winning his bronze for diving....

''As I sat with Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz in the Olympic stadium, I was overwhelmed with pride that I could take them to the 2012 Games in the part of London where I grew up, just down the road from where I first kicked a ball.

''I know that my boys have been inspired by what they've seen and want to try all sorts of different sports for themselves.''

David - who also has 13-month-old daughter Harper with wife Victoria - believes as a parent it is important to encourage children to do their best and he is overwhelmed by the ''strength and energy'' of families of disabled youngsters for helping their kids get into sport.

Speaking about the Paralympics, which begin in London today (29.08.12), he added: ''As parents blessed with four healthy children, Victoria and I are humbled by the strength and energy of mums and dads who encourage their disabled children to take up sports.

''It can involve real hardship and sacrifice, but there is no greater life lesson that you can give to your children than to 'be the very best that you can.' ''
