Life's a beach for David Beckham... well not quite
Former England captain takes part in first training session with new side PSG
David Beckham took part in his first training session with PSG today, and although just coming back from his holidays, found it was far from a stroll on the beach.
Following his January transfer deadline day move to the French club, the former England captain trained alongside his new team-mates for the first time.
Much of the session at the club's Camp des Loges training centre just outside Paris appeared straightforward, but Beckham was singled out to run on sand as part of his regime.
The former Manchester United and Real Madrid player is short of match sharpness having not played since leaving LA Galaxy last year. Running on sand is designed to help build up his fitness.

Last night Beckham was in the stands to watch his new team beat Valencia 2-1 in the Champions League.
The 37-year-old is expected to make his debut for PSG later this month, with this weekend's away match against Sochaux a possibility. However, his first appearance for the Ligue 1 leaders is more likely to take place against Marseille on Sunday 24 February.
