Footballer proposes to girlfriend on the pitch after his team's win

As if playing in front of thousands of fans wasn't nerve-wracking enough, one footballer decided to risk public humiliation by proposing to his girlfriend on the pitch after a Russian Premier League match.

FC Rostov defender Ivan Novoseltsev popped the question after his side's 1-0 win against Torpedo Moscow on Monday night, getting down on one knee at the Olimp-2 stadium to ask Katerina Keyru to marry him.

With his team-mates watching on and a camera in place to capture the moment on film, the Russia international beamed as his basketball-playing partner said yes.

The 23-year-old, who was capped by his country for the first time last month, looked delighted as he placed a ring on Keyru's finger before kissing and hugging her.

Novoseltsev then presented his bride-to-be with a huge bouquet of flowers as his team-mates congratulated the pair on their engagement.

FC Rostov's players also had plenty to celebrate after their fourth win in a row moved them further away from relegation trouble and into 10th place in the table.
