Having secured his fourth Tour de France title on Sunday, Chris Froome switched trades to become matchmaker for a fan.
Tom Calverley enlisted the help of Froome for his proposal to girlfriend Amy, who understandably looked visibly shocked in footage that was released on Twitter.
Fortunately, Amy said yes to ensure it was a double success for Froome in the Champs-Élysée.
The proposal came shortly after Froome had won his third consecutive title in the most famous race in cycling, with the Team Sky rider 54 seconds ahead of second-placed Rigoberto Uran of Colombia.
The Kenyan-born rider passed Mr Calverley a ring box, saying: "I've been carrying this around with me for three weeks."
Calverley then jokingly asks: "is that what almost made you lose it, do you think?," before proceeding to bend down on one knee and popping the question to his girlfriend.
Although the video on Twitter cuts out before Amy's response can be heard, a separate piece of footage is captioned "and she says yes!!!," clearly wowed by Froome's role in the proposal.
Froome consolidated his place as the most successful British rider in the Tour de France ever over the 21 stages, and is now just a sole title off the joint-record of five wins currently held by Jacques Anquetil, Eddie Merckx, Bernard Hinault, and Miguel Indurain.
None of those riders managed a victory on the Tour beyond the age of 31, but having settled that record, Froome is hugely confident that he will end up setting a new record number of wins, with the athlete claiming he feels he has still got five years at the top left in him.
He even managed to win the title this year without securing an actual stage to himself, becoming only the seventh rider to do so, which demonstrates the consistency that is needed if he is to extend his success into his late 30s.
