David Beckham pays Paris tribute

DAVID Beckham has led a host of stars in paying tribute to the Paris terror victims in an emotional video.

The former footballer was among 52 sporting legends who all came together in solidarity on the clip following the atrocity in the French capital earlier this month when terrorists killed 130 people.

Beckham and the likes of England soccer captain Wayne Rooney, tennis legend Andre Agassi and former England manager Kevin Keegan all exclaimined "Je suis Paris" on the two-minute footage.

The short film was played before Beckham's ex club Paris Saint Germain's home game at the Parc de Princes stadium against Troyes last weekend.

Beckham - who previously played for Paris Saint Germain - previously paid tribute to the victims before a charity soccer game.

He said: "It was terribly devastating to see the scenes, unfortunately we see it around the world and have seen it recently.

Other stars who have paid their respects include Justin Bieber, who advised his fans to "appreciate people" while they can after Universal Music Group executive Thomas Ayad was one of 89 people who lost their lives when gunmen opened fire during an Eagles of Death Metal concert at the Bataclan theatre.

He tweeted: "Still thinking about Paris and my friend Thomas that we lost in the tragedy. He was a part of the team for years and I wish I would've had more time to thank him.

"Make sure to appreciate people while you have them. Thanks Thomas for everything you did for me. You are appreciated and missed. Thoughts and prayers are with your family & friends #PrayForParis. (sic)"
