Tennis star Caroline Wozniacki has announced that she is engaged to NBA basketball player David Lee, saying that it was the "happiest day of my life".

The Danish athlete is currently on holiday in the South Pacific island of Bora Bora, with her new fiancé.

Last week, the former world number one enjoyed one of the biggest victories of her career, when she beat Venus Williams to win the WTA Finals.

Wozniacki was previously engaged to Irish golfer Rory McIlroy, in 2014, before he called off the marriage in a nine-minute phone call just after the invitations were posted.

Lee (34), who used to play for the San Antonio Spurs, posted a photo online to reveal the happy news.

"She said YES! So thrilled to be engaged to my soulmate," he posted on Instagram.

Wozniacki (27) had similar sentiments in her own post online: "Happiest day of my life yesterday saying yes to my soulmate," she posted. The engagement comes eight months after the couple first went public with their relationship, on Valentine's Day.
