Tennis star Serena Williams has announced that she is getting married.

She posted a poem on the social media site Reddit to say that her boyfriend, Alexis Ohanian, had asked her to marry him.

She said he proposed to her in Rome, where they first met - and she said yes.

Serena Williams writes: I came home/ A little late/ Someone had a bag packed for me/ And a carriage awaited/ Destination: Rome/ To escort me to my very own "charming"/ Back to where our stars first collided/ And now it was full circle/ At the same table we first met by chance/ This time he made it not by chance/ But by choice/ Down on one knee/ He said 4 words/ And/ I said yesReddit
