London: David Beckham has been made the face of UNICEF 's Ebola campaign, highlighting ways people can prevent the spread of the disease from claiming more lives.

The 39-year-old footballer is set to appear in a video explaining the importance of cleanliness in controlling the epidemic in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea, the Independent reported.

Sierra Leone Football Association president, Isha Johansen, said that to have Beckham involved in this campaign is massive for them and they are very grateful to him.

Johansen added that in Sierra Leone, football is a religion and all men, women and children follow a player or a team from the Premier League but Beckham is the favourite and that his sympathetic message will be broadcast across the country and the whole of West Africa, which will raise the importance of how to fight this disease by simple things like good cleanliness.
