Former Inter Milan and Juventus striker Christian Vieri will take part in Italy's version of 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The 38-year-old will be one of the celebrities for RAI's 'Ballando con le Stelle' show that will kick off on January 7.

Vieri, who hasn't played football since he rescinded his contract at Atalanta in April 2009, will reportedly net €800,000 to take part in the show.
