"I encourage the millions who transit through Qatar every year to follow in David's footsteps and create their own exciting adventure and memories."

The dad-of-four's involvement in the video sparked an online debate, with many fans highlighting Qatar's human rights abuses. Despite this, David has insisted that his involvement with Qatar allows him to introduce change from within and "to use football as a force for good."


The football star waited in line for 13 hours

David's news comes after he received praise for joining the long queues outside Westminster Hall to view the late Queen lying-in-state.

Last Friday, the famous footballer joined the public queue in the early hours of the morning. He reportedly made his way into Westminster Hall at around 3.30pm after waiting 13 hours.

Overcome with emotion, David appeared to well up as he filed past Her Majesty's coffin. Reflecting on the experience, David told ITV News: "It's a sad day, but it's a day for us to remember the incredible legacy that she's left… I think it'll take a long time to understand [the Queen's death] because I think Her Majesty meant so much in so many different ways."

David finished by adding: "This day was always going to be difficult for the nation, it's difficult for everyone around the world because everyone is feeling it."
