Former Milan and Inter Coach Leonardo asked his Italian TV presenter girlfriend to marry him live on air. “He’s gone crazy!”
Leo, who is now director general of PSG, was in Nyon speaking to Sky Sport Italia about the Champions League draw when he popped the question to the host in the studio Anna Billò.
She laughed nervously and said “we’ll talk about it at home” after he pointed out she had “already said no to me twice.”
As they were going to commercial, she muttered to her guests: “He’s gone crazy!”
The pair have been together for four years and already have a child, but have so far resisted tying the knot.
Later Billò was interviewed on the same channel about the incident that quickly went viral.
“I realise I am a very lucky woman. It was a strange and difficult moment to deal with, as I tend to be quite reserved.
“In fact, it’s surprising that knowing me he would do such a thing! It was a huge surprise for everyone. I thought it was a joke at first and was completely shocked.”
