March 25 (UPI) -- Flub it like Beckham?

David Beckham is famous for his free kicks, but the 37-year-old Paris St. Germain midfielder and former England captain slipped up, literally, during a demonstration for players at Zall Football Club in Wuhan, China on Friday.

Beckham, wearing a suit and tie, fell on the wet grass in front of a line of young soccer players as he kicked the ball, but immediately got up and laughed off the spill.

BBC Sport reported earlier this month that the superstar had been tapped to promote Chinese football in the country and abroad.

"I'm excited by the prospect of promoting the world's greatest game to Chinese sports fans as I've seen first hand the growing interest in football there," Beckham said in a statement about the trip.
