David Beckham visits children's hospital

David Beckham showed off his caring side on Tuesday (26Jul11) by visiting sick children at a hospital in New York.

The soccer superstar, whose wife Victoria gave birth to their fourth child earlier this month (Jul11), took time out from his busy schedule to drop in at the New York-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital.

Beckham met with youngsters suffering from cancer and happily posed for pictures with the kids, and he uploaded one of the images to his Facebook.com page on Wednesday (27Jul11).

In the accompanying post, he writes, "A visit to a New York Children's Hospital yesterday, organised by the Hope + Heroes Children's Cancer Fund."
