Most of us would probably be beside ourselves after winning Le Tour and focused on nothing but a proper celebration. Not Chris Froome, though. Being the perfect gentleman that he is, the four-time Tour de France winner managed to find some time to help a fan to propose.


Following the emotional speech and donning the yellow Jersey on the Champs-Elysees, the Brit went down to his fans. He shook a few hands and then unexpectedly reached back into his pocket to pull out a ring box, commenting that it had been weighing him down over the past three weeks. He handed it to the man standing in front of him, who didn’t hesitate to get down on one knee and propose.

The reaction his girlfriend made was priceless. Check it out in the tweet below. Team Sky caught the whole thing on video.

The woman quickly agreed to the proposal, leaving the husband-to-be, Chris and everybody around her in delight.

Congratulations and good luck in your marriage!
