Beckham still chasing his Olympic dream

David Beckham has reiterated his interest in playing for the Great Britain football team at the London Olympics and insists he can still perform at the top level.

The 36-year-old's deal with current club the Los Angeles Galaxy is about to run out and he admits there has been interest from Barclays Premier League clubs as well as Ligue 1 side Paris St Germain.

The former England skipper, who has been linked with the team for next year's Games, said: “We all dream about it and we all think about it. If it happens, I'll be honoured.”

The former Manchester United midfielder added: “People have been saying [I am too old] for the last 10 or 15 years and I've still continued to play for my country.

“Right now, I feel fit and still love playing, so I'm not finishing yet.”
