"Official Brand Ambassador of Chelsea FC ???? Don't ever stop believing because dreams do come true! It's a surreal feeling... I cannot express how happy, proud and excited I am! Thank you @chelseafc and @franklampard. #Blessed."

The announcement was made at Chelsea FC's training ground in Cobham, UK, in the esteemed presence of their legendary former player and current manager Lampard.
