Bella Hadid is ''so excited'' she has been announced as the new face of Nike.

The 20-year-old model has been confirmed as the brand ambassador for the sportswear giant and Bella has revealed she is honoured to ''officially'' be a ''part of the Nike family'' and star in more campaigns for the fashion house in the future.

The star took to social media to announce her excitement at the new project, which saw her post a picture of her sporting a pair of skin-tight black cropped leggings, and a long-sleeved crop top, looking at a Nike billboard with her face emblazoned on.

She captioned the image, which was shared on her Instagram account: ''so excited to announce that I am OFFICIALLY PART OF THE@NIKE FAMILY! More coming very soon (sic).''

Whilst another post read: ''@nike behind the by my Luv @renellaice (sic).''

And the catwalk icon - who was crowned Model of the Year at the GQ awards earlier this year - is set to make her debut appearance on the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, which will take place in Paris, France, on December 5.

The news the brunette beauty will strut along the runway in her skimpy lingerie next month was confirmed by a member of staff from Victoria's Secret, Jen Waldman, who shared a picture of her with the new recruit on social media.

Alongside a picture of Bella and Jen in a lift, which was tagged at Victoria's Secret Corporate HQ, and was shared to her Instagram account, read: '' One of us made the fashion show cut @bellahadid#vsfashionshow2016 (sic).''

Bella is set to walk alongside older sister Gigi, 21, Kendall Jenner, Stella Maxwell, as well as Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge, Elsa Hosk, Jasmine Tookes, Josephine Skriver, Lais Ribeiro, Martha Hunt, Romee Strijd, Sara Sampaio and Taylor Hill.
