The end of the advert calls for viewers to literally lend their voice to the campaign by visiting where you can upload your own audio to the petition.

The website explains: "We believe malaria must die so millions can live. It’s the 21st century and people are still dying from the world’s oldest and deadliest disease. Every two minutes a child dies from malaria but it's malaria that must die."

They add: "Join us and help us get world leaders to listen so they commit to ending one of the world’s biggest killers in our generation."

But how did they get David Beckham to speak so convincingly?

In the video David Beckham reveals: "I've been involved for quite a few years now, because obviously it's such a huge killer of children around the world.

"I think it's an incredible thing that's being done, but I also feel that it's a disease that we can end in my lifetime".
