It's tradition for women to be the ones who propose to men on February 29 and during a Wembley stadium tour before England's friendly against Holland on Wednesday, it happened right on the pitch.

After taking the tour throughout the stadium and ending up at the center circle hours before the start of the match, a woman named Kate explained the tradition to her boyfriend Jon. Though his initial reaction was to mumble "oh no," when Kate showed him a stone engraved with the words "Jon will you marry me? Kate x," he happily agreed and their fellow tourists cheered from back on the touchline.

As Kate explains in the video, Jon's 30th birthday was coming up and he had never been to an England match, so she thought it was the perfect time and place to invoke the leap day tradition. Jon, meanwhile, seemed quite surprised.
