Olympic champion Caster Semenya is set to play football in 2020 after joining South African club JVW.

A two-time Olympic gold medallist in the 800 metres, Semenya could make her football debut next year.

JVW, who are owned by South Africa women's captain Janine van Wyk, announced the signing of the 28-year-old on Thursday.

"I am grateful for this opportunity and I appreciate the love and support I already get from the team," Semenya said in a statement.

"I am looking forward to this new journey, and hopefully I can contribute as much as I can to the club."

Semenya's atheltics career has been plagued by issues surrounding her testosterone levels and she won't be allowed to compete at the 2019 World Athletics Championships in Doha later this year.

The situation has left Semenya frustrated and she hopes her case can set an example for future generations.
