SERENA WILLIAMS has recorded a version of the Divinyls' 'I Touch Myself' for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

"This Breast Cancer Awareness Month I’ve recorded a version of The Divinyls global hit “I Touch Myself” to remind women to self-check regularly.

"Yes, this put me out of my comfort zone, but I wanted to do it because it’s an issue that affects all women of all colors, all around the world. Early detection is key - it saves so many lives. I just hope this helps to remind women of that.

"The music video is part of the I Touch Myself Project which was created in honor of celebrated diva, Chrissy Amphlett, who passed away from breast cancer, and who gave us her hit song to remind women to put their health first. The project is proudly supported by @BerleiAus for Breast Cancer Network Australia."

Many praised Williams for bringing awareness to this topic, with one person posting on Instagram: "You’re awesome! Very beautiful tribute and reminder that we should all check ourselves regularly."

Another commentator stated she was impressed by Williams' singing abilities, writing. "You’re amazing ! What a great message and what a beautiful voice you have !!! Keep singing!!"
