There were emotional scenes at a Russian football match yesterday when a player proposed to his girlfriend directly after his side's victory.

23-year-old Russian international Ivan Novoseltsev got down on one knee in the middle of the pitch after his side FC Rostov beat Torpedo Moscow 1-0 in the Russian Premier League.

It was Rostov's fourth consecutive victory but the real celebrations were to follow when he called his girlfriend Katerina Keyru onto the pitch before popping the question in front of his applauding team-mates.

By the looks of things, it was a simple yes and the pair embraced and kissed before walking down the tunnel together, ring and flowers in hand.
