Olympic cyclist poses as Audrey Hepburn for bread ad

Posted By: Staff

London, April 12 (ANI): Olympic gold medal cyclist Victoria Pendleton has featured in an advertisement for bread making company Hovis.

Pendleton, who has signed as the brand ambassador for Hovis in a three-year-deal, posed as Audrey Hepburn's Breakfast at Tiffany's look for the ad.

The 29-year-old cyclist is seen wearing a black dress, matching gloves and pearls, and can be hardly recognized in the advertisement, reports The Daily Express.

Victoria said: "A substantial breakfast is a vital part of my training so I make sure I never skip it. I can't perform at my best either physically or mentally without a good start to the day and I would certainly not be able to achieve my long term training goals."

Victoria will be seen posing with a slice of brown bread in her hand, unlike Hepburn who is seen holding a cigarette. (ANI)
