Love is in the air with the first proposal of the Rio Olympics

The women's rugby 7s competition wrapped up in Rio last night, with the Australian team taking the gold, but they weren't the only winners on the night.

Shortly after the medal ceremony, stadium manager Marjorie Enya took to the field to propose to her girlfriend Isadora Cerullo, a member of the Brazilian team who finished 7th overall. The moment was captured on camera by both media and spectators.


Enya began planning the proposal as soon as Brazil qualified for the games, telling the BBC "As soon as I knew she was in the squad I thought I have to make this special. I know rugby people are amazing and they would embrace it."

The couple have been together for two years, and live together in Sao Paulo.
