Football star David Beckham will bring the Olympic flame from Greece to Britain for the torch relay ahead of the London 2012 Games, organisers said on Wednesday.

Beckham will be joined by five young Britons for Thursday's handover ceremony at the Panathenaic Stadium in Athens.

The Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder and former England captain will then be part of the delegation that brings the flame to Cornwall in southwest England to begin its 70-day journey around Britain and Ireland.
