Finally, female Muslim athletes will be represented in professional sportswear- thanks to Nike.

The US sportswear giants become the first major international company to embrace the requirement for Muslim women that has taken over a year to be finalised.

The Nike Pro Hijab comes with a £24.99 price tag

On its website, Nike says the Nike Pro Hijab is made with breathable fabric, lightweight, "that wicks away sweat, and stays tucked in during any workout or competition."
