Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker has been appointed as an official goodwill ambassador by the World Health Organisation (WHO).

The club's official website announced the news that Becker was confirmed as one of four new ambassadors set to 'promote healthier, stronger health workforces and improved mental health globally’.

Alisson and his wife, Dr. Natalia Loewe Becker, a medical doctor and health advocate from Brazil, were named WHO goodwill ambassadors for health promotion.

“Each of our new ambassadors are champions in their own right,” said WHO director-general Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus as he announced the appointments at the 72nd World Health Assembly in Geneva.

“From helping their communities rebuild and develop sustainably, to fighting for better mental health and wellbeing, to being role models for healthier living.”

Cynthia Germanotta, president of Born This Way Foundation, and Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, former president of Liberia, were named goodwill ambassadors for mental health and health workforce respectively.
