A short clip teases fans about Bruce Jenner's interview with Diane Sawyer

A previous trailer already sparked excitement amongst Bruce's fans earlier this month after a long period of speculation that he is transitioning to a woman.

The video included a voiceover confirming that Bruce's exclusive talk with journalist and former news anchor Diane will cover "the journey, the decisions, the future".It is expected to be the first time that the 65-year-old Olympic gold medalist will address reports that he is making the transition from male to female.

Bruce will reportedly address rumours that he is transgender in the interview

It was revealed that Bruce would record the tell-all interview in February, just days after he was said to have also started filming a new docu-series about the "journey".

Bruce, who divorced his wife of 22 years Kris Jenner in December 2014, is thought to have chosen to speak to Diane because she has always been very supportive of the LGBT community in the past.

ABC previously released details of the upcoming show, which is called Bruce Jenner: The Interview, revealing that it will be a two-hour programme, and would be "far-ranging and exclusive".According to media reports, the former track and field star has told his family that he is transgender, and they are incredibly supportive of him. Bruce, who won a gold medal in the decathlon at the 1976 Olympics in Montreal, has maintained a low profile since he was involved in a fatal car accident in February.
