It has been confirmed that football legend David Beckham will be accompanying the Olympic Torch as it makes its historic arrival to RNAS Culdrose on Friday evening.
The torch, which is flying in from Athens, will be flanked by the LA Galaxy footballer and five students who from schools and colleges which are part of London 2012's Get Set education network.
The young people are Dennis Coles, 17, from East Ayrshire, Scotland; Chloe Brown, 18, from Bangor, Northern Ireland; Sean White, 17, from Swansea; and Georgia Higgs, 15, from Cornwall.
The Chairman of LOCOG, Sebastian Coe, said "We wanted to involve young people from across the UK in bringing home the Olympic Flame.
"Their stories of personal achievement and contribution to sport echo the 8,000 inspiring Torchbearer stories that will be shared from this weekend and over the next ten weeks in the build-up to the start of the Games.
"Working with one of our most inspiring sportspeople is also fitting for this hugely exciting time for the London 2012 Games."
