Amy Doyle, General Manager at MTV, VH1, CMT and Logo, said: "Johnson is an icon on both film and TV who has become one of the most beloved actors of our generation.

"Throughout his career, Johnson has proven to be the ultimate badass - an action star with a flair for comedy, one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time and a true family man.

"He continues to captivate his audience worldwide and we are thrilled to celebrate him with the Generation Award."

The ceremony, which is held at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, on June 18, and is hosted by Zachary Levi, will also see Jada Pinkett Smith presented with the Trailblazer award.
