London: Soccer star David Beckham's sons are keen to try new sports after attending several events at the London 2012 Olympics.

The 37-year-old footballer, who was an ambassador for the 2012 Games, said that he was 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, reported online media.

"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," David said.

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

David also has 13-month-old daughter Harper with wife Victoria.
