Tennis stars Gael Monfils and Elina Svitolina are engaged!

'She said YES Madame MONFILS @elisvitolina #July2021 (XV)(III)', the Frenchman captioned a picture with Svitolina donning a sizable diamond ring and Monfils in the background.

With snow-clad mountains in the background, Svitolina and Monfils captured the moment for posterity and for their fans on Instagram.

Frenchman Monfils and Ukranian Svitolina have been dating from 2018, but announced in February that they were taking a break from their relationship.

This coincided with Monfils's not so hot performances on court, especially after being knocked out of the first round of the Australian Open in February.

They got back together recently and Monfils popped the question on Sunday.
