Sheffield United are set to rename one of their stands after Olympic gold medallist Jessica Ennis.
From this weekend, the Bramall Lane stand will be renamed The Jessica Ennis Stand in recognition of the Sheffield heptathlete's achievements.
Sheffield United owner Kevin McCabe said: "It is an appropriate and fitting tribute to re-name our Bramall Lane double tier stand after one of the finest athletes this country has ever produced".
Ennis told the club's website: "I never expected when I started out in athletics in Sheffield all those years ago that I would have a football stand at Sheffield United named after me".
Olympic gold medallist Jessica Ennis will be immortalised on the cover of The Beano as Ennis the Menace.
The heptathlete appears in a special edition of the comic which celebrates Team GB's success in London 2012.
