A four-month-old polar bear born at Berlin's Tierpark zoo was named Hertha on Tuesday (April 2), after the German capital's Bundesliga soccer club which will be its sponsor.

During a ceremony watched by a small crowd of onlookers, Hertha delighted zoo visitors as she ran after a football with her name on it before enjoying a dip in the pond with mother Tonya.

Zoo director Andreas Knierim said little Hertha was making great progress and that she had already put on lots of weight thanks to a hefty diet of mother's milk.
