Former England football captain David Beckham has described the Queen as "the number one leader" in a documentary to mark the sovereign's 90th birthday.
His comments were made as he attended the Queen's Young Leaders Awards at Buckingham Palace in June and will feature in ITV's programme 'Our Queen at Ninety'.
Beckham also said that receiving his OBE in 2003 from the Queen, with his grandparents in the audience, was "one of the proudest moments" of his career.
The former footballer, who received the honour in 2003 for his services to the sport, said it "doesn't get any better" than meeting the monarch.
