Serena Williams has used the social media platform Reddit to announce that she is engaged to its co-founder, Alexis Ohanian.

The tennis star made the announcement in the form of a poem.

She said he took her to Rome, where they first met, to propose to her - and she said yes.

It caps off a year in which Ms Williams won her seventh Wimbledon singles title and 22nd Grand Slam singles title, but dropped to world number two ranking.

Reddit is a social media community where users group around topics, news articles and discussion points, rather than around people they know in offline life.

Mr Ohanian founded it in 2005 alongside a college friend, Steve Huffman.
Ms Williams posted to r/isaidyes, a forum where users share their stories of wedding proposals, saying he had taken her to the table in Rome where they first met, where he got down on one knee and "said four words".

The 35-year-old legend posted the following poem:

“I came home
A little late
Someone had a bag packed for me
And a carriage awaited
Destination: Rome
To escort me to my very own “charming”
Back to where our stars first collided
And now it was full circle
At the same table we first met by chance
This time he made it not by chance
But by choice
Down on one knee
He said 4 words
and r/isaidyes”

Ohanian, 33, responded on Reddit by saying: “And you made me the happiest man on the planet.”

He also reposted William’s post on his Facebook page and wrote: “She said yes.”

It’s obvious the days of cream paper stock and engraved engagement announcements are gone! He posted this picture as well:
