Fraser-Pryce, who already has endorsement deals with Digicel, GraceKennedy and Nike, has now added her first non-apparel deal outside of Jamaica.

Richard Mille has a long history with sports, with deals with F1 teams McClaren and Ferrari as well as sponsoring the Open de France Dames golf tournament since 2013.

Additionally, the brand has sponsorship deals with other well-decorated athletes, including South African 400m specialist Wayde van Niekerk and 22-time tennis grand slam champion, Spain’s Rafael Nadal.

Fraser-Pryce also becomes the second Jamaican to be added to the Richard Mille family, joining Olympic medalist Yohan Blake, who signed in 2011.

The partnership will run for three years and is to help fund Fraser-Pryce’s Pocket Rocket Foundation.
