Former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham has been demonstrating her boxing skills during a visit to see the BoxGirls scheme in Kenya.

The 43-year-old designer is in the East African country to see some of the projects supported by Sport Relief first hand, but jokingly blamed tight jeans for her lack of boxing prowess.

During the trip she also met and spoke to villagers, expressing how delighted she was that the girls she met had big dreams for their futures, such as wanting to be lawyers and doctors.

Speaking about the visit, Victoria said she had been supporting the work of Sport Relief for over a decade.

“I first went on a field trip to Peru in 2004 for the A Mile In Their Shoes documentary,” she said.

“Fourteen years later, here I am in Kenya, visiting incredible community projects that are protecting, educating and empowering women of all ages,” she explained.

I’m truly inspired by the projects that Sport Relief support both here and of course across the UK.

“It is all down to the amazing generosity of the British public and the money you donate, that girls across the world are being given brighter, happier and healthier futures,” she added.

Victoria last visited Kenya two years ago when she was supporting the First Lady’s Beyond Zero campaign.
