Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper, Itumeleng Khune, has reportedly put a ring on it.

The sportsman is rumoured to have paid lobola for his beau, Sphelele Makhunga.

The bride-to-be shared an image of herself wearing a blanket over her shoulders and a doek on her head on Instagram and announced the news with the caption: "16.11.2019 Thank you @itukhune32," followed by a ring and cow emojis.

The outfit is a cultural representation of a married woman. The 32-year-old replied to the post with the comment, "My wifey bear."

The pair have been openly sharing snaps of one another on their social media accounts for months now.
