Is there something you're not telling us, Ryk and Sahar?

We’ve been holding our breath for months to see if Olympic swimmer Ryk Neethling (39) and the beautiful Sahar Biniaz (30) would find their way back to each other.

In September last year friends of the couple had made it known that they’d split up. No reason was given as to why they’d broken off their year-long engagement.

Ryk flew to Monaco this week to attend the prestigious Laureus Worlds Sport Awards evening. And no prizes for guessing who else was in Monaco this week – Sahar! Which makes us wonder… Have the two rekindled the romantic flame?

Sahar shared a pic on Instagram the day before Valentine’s Day with the caption: “Bonjour, Monaco.”

Among them were American sprinter Michael Johnson, golf legend Gary Player and former All Black captain Sean Fitzpatrick. “@LaureusSport Awards any sport fan’s dream #Laureus17” Ryk tweeted.

Ryk spent Valentine’s Day evening at the Laureus Awards show, mingling with international and South African sport stars – such as the Springbok Bryan Habana and Olympic gold medallist Wayde van Niekerk. From what we gather on Instagram, Ryk was seated at the same table as Princess Charlene of Monaco, whose wedding he also attended in 2011. The evening’s host was British actor Hugh Grant.

Neither Ryk nor Sahar shared pics on social media of them together at the awards ceremony. But we can’t help but wonder whether the former beauty queen accompanied him to the event. After all, Ryk did say on Instagram that it was one of the best nights of his life… Watch this space!
