Former England footballer David Beckham is not known for his polyglot skills but he is leading a new anti-malaria campaign where he appears to be speaking nine languages.

He’s in a short film talking about the fight against malaria and through camera and computer technology seems to be speaking Swahili, Kinyarwanda, Arabic and Yoruba among other languages.

His lips and face are moving in the right way but the voices that you hear belong to survivors of malaria.

Organisers hope that people around the world will log on and add their voices.

The resulting “voice petition”, as they call it, will be used to put pressure on world leaders as they prepare to make decisions about the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
