The former England soccer captain is on a whirlwind trip across oceans, making stopovers in New York, Miami and Dubai. He was in Dubai for the launch of the Adidas store.
He was in New York, where he met Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai for the second time at the Global Citizen Festival. It is the same place where Beyoncé and Michelle Obama were attendees. The father of four also made a stopover in London amid his tight schedule and attended the Pride of Britain Awards.
He presented an award to Sohanna Collins who suffers from a rare genetic skin disease. The 13-year-old is more prone to breaking out in blisters and third-degree burns. She has helped raise 3.5 million pounds to help other children like her, and was presented with the Teenager of Courage Award for her efforts.
