It is not uncommon for Olympic athletes to receive marriage proposals from fans. A few days ago, however, a Simone Biles fan went above and beyond for the Olympic champion, accompanying his marriage proposal letter with an engagement ring.

The ring was beautifully refined, gold plated and with a ruby shaped as a heart.

Biles was autographing 200 leotards, when she received the letter.

Simone Biles showed it on Snapchat, writing: ‘just got proposed to & even sent a ring’.

Biles has been flirting with marriage proposals since the Rio Olympics. Back in Rio, her ‘Olympic partner’ was Brazil’s Olympic bronze-medallist gymnast Arthur Mariano, who, however, had his heart jokingly shattered, when Biles got to meet her huge crash, American actor Zac Efron.

Simone Biles is currently taking a break from gymnastics, but said she will come back to make a bid for the 2020 Olympics.
