Matildas captain Sam Kerr has confirmed the rumours she’s dating US soccer player Kristie Mewis, after the pair were spotted together in Tokyo.

The 27-year-old, who heads the Australian women’s national soccer team, and Kristie made it Instagram official on Monday.

Sam shared a Polaroid photo of the pair kissing each other to Instagram. She tagged Kristie in the post with a red heart emoji.

Kristie also shared a selfie with Sam on her own Instagram Stories on Monday.

The Matildas sadly missed out on a medal at the Olympic Games in Tokyo. Last week, the Matildas lost 4-3 to the US women’s team, denying them the bronze.
