Maria Sharapova recently received a marriage proposal by a fan at the Brisbane International tennis tournament.

Damian Torrie held up a sign and yelled out "Marry me Maria Sharapova?" during her first match, which encouraged a chorus of laughs around Pat Rafter Arena, News.com.au reported.

Torrie posted a photo on Twitter of a jubilant Sharapova offering her best pout face and peace sign before signing off on the marriage proposal.

The 29-year-old said that he walked down there and got Sharapova to sign the poster and also asked if he could take a selfie with her.

There were a lot of people around but the 27-year-old sport star was really nice and kind, in fact she just really loved the support and thanked him for it, he further added.

A fan made sure boyfriend and fellow tennis star Grigor Dimitrov was kept in the loop, tweeting the picture to his account three times.
