Gisele Bündchen has long been proud of her Brazilian roots, and now a local newspaper is reporting that the supermodel has been awarded a huge honour in the upcoming Olympic Games.

According to Extra, Gisele is set to host the opening ceremony at Maracana Stadium on August 5.

The theme of the ceremony is still under wraps though the paper reports that is "the future" and it's reported that Gisele (who retired from modelling last year) will walk through a "futuristic gateway" at the event.
