David announced the news on his Instagram, saying: “I’ve been lucky enough to meet and work with many serving, veteran and wounded British armed forces personnel over the years and I’ve been humbled by the courage, resilience and spirit shown by each and every one of them.

“So, I’m incredibly proud to announce I will be an Ambassador for this year’s Invictus Games in Sydney.”
