The most spontaneous move on David Beckham's unannounced visit to Sierra Leone was an improvised stop at a roadside pitch for a game of football in Freetown. We were driving past the pitch on our way to the hotel, when Beckham noticed the game in progress and had the vehicles circle back.

It wasn't enough just to shake his hand. They had to rub his head, touch his tattoosÃ� As for the game itself, Beckham took it easy.

The armed forces remained on the sideline during the 2007 presidential election, but still look to the UN Integrated Office in Sierra Leone (UNIOSIL) - a civilian UN mission - to support efforts to consolidate peace. The new government's priorities include furthering development, creating jobs, and stamping out endemic corruption.
