How runners propose: Tweeps go wild over Comrade finisher's proposal to Prudence
"A man must run 90km to ask for a hand in marriage from his woman," wrote one tweep.
JOHANNSBURG - A man identified as Joseph Kagiso Ndlovu has sent tweeps in a frenzy over his proposal to a certain Prudence as he crossed the Comrades Marathon finish line on Sunday.
"Prudence will you marry me? Run 90k for you," read a banner held by the 57-year-old.
From those who hope the yet-identified Prudence said yes, because 'how can you say no to a man who runs 90km for you', to those who think 'running 90km for a proposal is insane', Twitter users had a lot to say.
Running 90km for a woman named Prudence is absolutely INSANE https://t.co/o2NaWGZXOl— Lonwabo (@lonwabo_mbuqwa) August 28, 2022

As we eagerly await an update from this developing love story, we are all left wondering if Ndlovu on Sunday night slept a happy man, one - for his Comrades finish, and two - because of a yes from Pru.
