David Beckham impressed the locals from the start when he was unveiled as an AC Milan player last night, by speaking Italian at his first press conference.

Dressed in a blue jumper, jeans, mirrored sunglasses and a scarf against the chill he smiled and waved at the small group of fans who had gathered to welcome him. After landing at Milan's Malpensa airport he headed off to a private clinic for a medical, which he reportedly passed with flying colours.

As he left the airport he said:

"I am honoured to be here and to play for one of the most successful clubs in the world. I have played for the biggest club in England, the biggest club in Spain and now I want to play for the biggest club in Italy."
Beckham also was keen to emphasise that his stay in Milan would be strictly football.
"Fashion had nothing to do with coming to Milan," he said. "The red and black shirt and the history of the club took me here."
