Several people have been injured after fans of David Beckham charged forward to catch a glimpse of the football star, reported Sky News.
Three police officers, two security guards and two students were hurt in the stampede outside a stadium at Tongji University in Shanghai, China.
Beckham, who was on the fourth day of a week-long tour China, had been due to meet members of the university football team.
When he arrived at the stadium, some of the 1,000 fans who had gathered to meet him stormed through a gate and broke through a line formed by security staff.
A spokesman for Tongji University said one student suffered leg injuries, while a guard suffered bruising to her eye.
Those taken to hospital would remain there for further observation and treatment, he said.
Beckham, 38, whose car was surrounded by huge crowds earlier in the day, was unable to reach the pitch and the event was cancelled.
