Olympic gold medallist Eric Radford marries his partner Luis Fenero in a beautiful ceremony in Spain.

Radford became the first openly gay athlete to win a gold medal at the 2018 Olympic Games in Pyeongchang and announced his engagement to Spanish ice dancing national champion Fenero back in 2017.

At the time, Radford wrote on Instagram: “I’ve learned that the best things in life have a level of simplicity to them.

“I see it in art, I hear it in music, and I feel it with this man. Loving him is simple and beautiful.”

And now, the couple revealed they tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony in Spain – who legalised same-sex marriages back in 2005.

While posting images of the wedding on Instagram, Radford said: “It was perfect.”

“An amount of love I could’ve never imagined and a wedding day I could’ve never dreamed,” he wrote the following day, posting portraits from the big day.
