"We've been dating for over six years," He Zi told reporters.

"I didn't know that he would propose today, and I didn't expect that I would marry myself out so early.

"He (Qin) said a lot of things there at the podium. He made a lot of promises, but the thing that has touched me the most is that I think this is the guy I can trust for the rest of my life."

Kai, 25, who is also a diver in the Rio 2016 Olympics won a bronze medal in the men synchronised 3-meter springboard.
