Jessica Ennis becomes brand ambassador for Powerade

Coca-Cola Great Britain (GB) has signed World Champion athlete Jessica Ennis as brand ambassador for its Powerade sports drink.

The deal, which runs until the end of 2012, will see Ennis make appearances for the sports drink in the UK to help promote the benefits of hydration, the firm said today (18 May).

She will also appear in above-the-line marketing activity and brand endorsements.

A Coca-Cola GB representative said: "We are delighted to announce this new partnership with Jessica. She has proven her pedigree on the international stage as a World Champion and at only 24 years of age her future is very exciting. We look forward to working with her."

Ennis is the second signing for Coca-Cola, who recently teamed up with Manchester United and England football star Wayne Rooney for a push on Powerade around this year's FIFA World Cup.
