The 'version 14.0' list of new emoji also includes a motorcycle tyre, a slide, a disco ball, a troll with club and several different versions of a royal member wearing a crown, which vary by skin colour.
The working list of emoji are determined by the California-based Unicode Consortium.
Third parties can make applications in support of new emoji.
Candidates must work well at emoji sizes, convey new meaning and must appear to be in demand.
Patterns of existing emoji usage are used to help guide the uptake of new additions to the Unicode Standard.
Also being introduced is the ability to choose from 15 different handshake combinations, also in a variety of races and skin tones.
The new additions have been detailed by Emojipedia prior to World Emoji Day this Saturday (July 17).

'Expect to see more about this later in the year when the final version of Unicode 14.0 and Emoji 14.0 is released on September 14.'
Companies including Apple, Google and Microsoft apply stylised versions of the consortium's designs to their own operating systems.
No release dates have been confirmed for the emoji on different operating systems, but they will likely be seen on all platforms by June 2022, Emojipedia says.
