Spanish Olympic figure skater Javier Raya has come out publicly as gay with a sweetness-overload picture of him kissing his boyfriend.

The 25-year-old pro athlete shared the photo on his Instagram with the caption:

‘Many of you know, others can imagine by the pictures and others will be surprised, but I have to say that right now I feel like the luckiest person in the world! Thank you @nicholsondrew.’

More photos of the adorable couple are found on Raya’s boyfriend, Andrew Alan Nicholson’s Instagram profile:

 

Raya competed at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi and placed 25th.

Raya is the second major Olympic athlete from Spain who have come out recently.

Last month, Gay Star News reports that water polo player Victor Gutierrez, who will compete in the upcoming Rio Olympics, has come out publicly on the cover of LGBTI website and magazine Shangay.

‘I hope my coming out serves to break a taboo within the sport,’ Gutierrez said. ‘You have to be judged not by your sexuality but by your sporting merit.’
