Jessica Ennis to feature on ‘Beano’ cover

London, Aug 22 (ANI): Jessica Ennis is set to feature on the cover of children’s comic book ‘The Beano.’

DC Thomson has confirmed the 26-year-old heptathlete will appear as “Ennis the Menace” in a special Olympic edition.

The Dundee publishers have said the comic, which goes on sale on Wednesday, will mark the success of Team GB at London 2012.

Ennis will be seen taking part in the “Menace Heptathlon.”

It is the latest honour for the heptathlete, last week 18,000 people gathered in Sheffield city centre to welcome her home, where she was told she was to be handed the freedom of the city.

“Just when she thought her golden summer couldn’t get any better, Olympic heptathlon star, Jessica Ennis is immortalised on a very special cover of The Beano,” the BBC quoted a spokesperson for the Beano as saying.

“The famous comic lets her have the honour of taking the place of cover-star Dennis as Jess becomes “Ennis the Menace” for the week, taking part in the ‘Menace Heptathlon’,” the spokesperson added. (ANI)
