Cornish sailing hero Sir Ben Ainslie is tying a different sort of knot.
The Olympics star has announced he is getting married to TV presenter Georgie Thompson.
She has joked on Twitter she is expecting the honeymoon to involve a boat.
The 37 year old, who learnt to sail off Restronguet, posted a photo of them together, along with his dog, and wrote: "Picture says it all. So happy to be engaged to the loveliest woman in the World. Biggles is pretty excited too!"
Georgie added: "This just in… @AinslieBen and I are getting married! Couldn't be happier. Suspect the honeymoon may involve a boat..:)"
The pair have known each other for the last three years as friends, but romance blossomed in April.
The relationship has sometimes been a long distance one, with him in San Francisco and her in New York, where her TV job is based.7:04am 8th October 2014
