Adorable Moment Emma Raducanu Gets Proposed To During Match

Adorable Moment Emma Raducanu Gets Proposed To During Match

Our hearts just melted.

As the highest ranked female tennis player in Britain, we think it's safe to assume that Emma Raducanu has won the hearts of millions across the UK and beyond.

And while most might be content to cheer along from the sidelines of her matches or from their sofas at home, others are so passionate about the sports star that they simply have to shout it from the rooftops.

That's how one cheeky 7-year-old fan felt when he went to see Emma face-off against Elena-Gabriela Ruse at the Royal Albert Hall.

Watch the adorable moment here:

Leo Gomez-Franqueira had already made quite a name for himself, after an assessment revealed he had an IQ higher than the likes of Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawkins.

The child-genius, who can already speak five languages and play a number of instruments, got people talking when he decided to shoot his shot with 19-year-old Emma Raducanu.

Leo's parents managed to capture the precious moment on camera, and his brave proposal has since gone viral.

After catching the cute moment, one viewer commended Leo, writing: "You got more guts than most grown up men!! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 #Bravery! #emmaraducanu should have gone at least for icecream after that match with you!!"

Leo proposed to Emma during a match. (

Another commented: "😮 did you say that? 😂😂 cute 😂😂", while a third wrote: "So it was you the proposer 😂👏🙌 cute🎾".

One amused viewer suggested: "You should have proposed in Mandarin😍. Next time 😂😂😂".

That's a challenge that we think Leo could handle, considering he could speak English, Mandarin, and Spanish by the time he started walking.

Emma, too, is multilingual and can speak English, Romanian and Mandarin.

Honestly, Leo and Emma would probably be too powerful together.

Emma has the cutest little fan. (

By the looks of things, Emma decided to pass on her fan's proposal, but the gesture definitely did bring a smile to her face.

But maybe try again in a few years, Leo!
