Emma Raducanu meets David Beckham during breathtaking World Cup final

Emma Raducanu met British football legend David Beckham while attending the Qatar World Cup final.

On Sunday, Raducanu attended the breathtaking World Cup final between Argentina and France.

With two early goals from Lionel Messi and Angel Di Maria, Argentina took a 2-0 lead at halftime. Then, Kylian Mbappe scored two goals in a span of 90 seconds to tie the game to 2-2. In the overtime, Messi scored a goal to give Argentina a 3-2 lead before Mbappe scored his third goal to tie the game to 3-3 and force a penalty shoo-tout.

Argentina came up big during the penalty shoot-out as Messi ended up finally winning his first World Cup title.

Raducanu was also in action this past weekend

On Friday, Raducanu took part in the lone women's match at this year's Mubadala World Tennis Championship in Abu Dhabi.

Raducanu, 20, fell just short of winning her first Mubadala World Tennis Championship as Ons Jabeur recovered from a set down to beat the Briton 5-7 6-3 10-8. “I’ve had an amazing experience, really enjoyed playing on this court in a great environment.

So impressed. The fans were cheering Ons a bit more, but I like that. It was great fun. I was happy with my performance, and it was good playing against Ons in a really enjoyable atmosphere," Raducanu said. In Abu Dhabi, Raducanu revealed Sebastian Sachs as her new coach.

However, nothing is on full-time basis yet as Raducanu wants to take more time before she decides if Sachs will be her full-time coach in 2023. "We are trialing until the end of the year and just seeing how it goes really.

It's been going well. I've done a week with him so far and I think he's a really calm influence. He's on it, switched on, and yeah, I'm excited to see how it goes," Raducanu said.
