London, Jul 27: British football superstar, David Beckham is confident that the 2012 London Olympics will be "one of the best, if not the best Olympics of all time." The former England football captain has all along been a supporter of the gala event and was its official ambassador in Singapore in 2005 when London was handed the Olympics for the third time.

In an interview with CNN, Beckham, 36 made it clear that he was whole-heartedly supporting the Great Britain team to win maximum possible medals. He said, "My goal is first I want to be a fan at the Olympics and support our Team GB to win as many medals, to win as many gold medals, and to make our country proud, which they will do because we've got so many great young athletes that have been around for a while."

He added, "So, it's an exciting time, and with my involvement I just want to be a part of it. For it to be in the East End of London is a proud moment for myself, and to be there with my sons, possibly my daughter, my wife, it's going to be a proud moment for not only myself but for many people in this country."

Speaking about his own career, he said, "I've had such an exciting career so far ... when it will end, who knows. I continue to enjoy my football like I'm doing, I love playing. Until that changes, then I'll continue to play whether that will be here or in the US. I'm enjoying my time playing for the Galaxy and have no reason to move anywhere else."

The former English captain was effusive in his praise for the newly-wed Prince Williams and Kate Middleton. He said, "They're an amazing couple that a month ago made our country so proud to see their amazing occasion."

And added, "To have watched Prince Harry and Prince William grow up from such a young age and go through what they have gone through -- it was such an amazing occasion for our country. To be part of that was incredible."
