There have been suggestions that the boost in participation in sport which followed London 2012 is beginning to drop off. Beckham says that makes initiatives like Living for Sport critical, particularly in schools.
"There's always more than can be done. But I think it's what our country does. We preserve legacies. The success we had in the Olympics, we can't afford to not to keep that legacy going," he said.
"We can't afford to keep young kids from coming through and becoming sportsmen. That's why Living for Sport is so important and it's so important we keep doing the work we are doing."
