DENVER (CBS4) – What’s Peyton Manning doing in his retirement?

Touring China, of course!

The former Denver Broncos quarterback and future hall of famer is in China to promote the NFL, with stops in both Shanghai and Beijing.

Manning is participating in Fan Forums, helping grow youth flag and tackle football leagues by running clinics, and, of course, working with some of the best young quarterbacks in the country, according to an NFL China news release.

He is even taking in a little sightseeing, with stops at places like the Forbidden City.

Manning also took the time to explain to fans the origin of his famous audible “Omaha,” joking that he’s very much a big deal in Omaha, Nebraska.

You can follow Manning’s visit to China through the @NFL_China on Twitter, as well as the league’s official social media pages.
