Can you imagine receiving an award from two of the most popular athletes of their generations??
That's EXACTLY what happened to Afghan refugee Matiullah Haidar, who was given the inaugural Generation Ali Beyond Sport Award at a London reception by Muhammad Ali and David Beckham.
The idea behind it to is to recognize young people who have inspired their peers through sport.
Here's what Becks said:
'Muhammad Ali is one of the most inspirational sportsmen of all time. He is a global icon, and he has touched so many lives. It is a true honour to join with him to present the Generation Ali Beyond Sport Award to one of this incredible group of young people.'
What a night!
Hope all is well, David and Muhammed!
