Ghanaian boxer and Olympic medalist, Samuel Takyi, has posed beside a lady in a photo that is fast making the rounds on social media after winning a medal at Tokyo 2020.
The frame in which Samuel Takyi posed side by side with the lady surfaced online soon after his win over Colombia's 32-year-old David Ceiber Avila.
Takyi sported a simple t-shirt and beaded bracelet while the lady rocked a sleeveless shirt and long braids.
The photo has been widely circulated on social media, garnering accolades for the athlete.
Twenty-year-old Samuel Takyi won his Olympic quarter-final to clinch a medal at Tokyo 2020, the first Olympic medal for a Ghanaian athlete in nearly three decades.
Takyi triumphed over Colombia's 32-year-old David Ceiber Avila, a far more experienced fighter, in the quarter-final, taking two of three rounds to send the Ghanaian contingent in the stands wild.
The Ghanaian athlete will move on to the semi-final where he'll face Ragan Duke from the United States. Duke eliminated Irish boxer, Kurt Walker, in his quarter-final bout, according to olympics.com.
