Abdul Latif Romly recently became the talk of the town among netizens over his recent appearance during the Tokyo Paralympic Games 2020. Some even pointed out that the record-breaking athlete’s face look strikingly similar to popular celeb Remy Ishak.
Despite all the limelight focusing on Abdul Latif these past few days, a lot of fans were left brokenhearted and disappointed after his mom broke the news that the 24-year-old long jumper is apparently off the market. :(
During an interview with Kosmo, Abdul Latif’s mother, Salmah Yatim, revealed that her son is planning to tie the knot with his long-time GF sometime in 2025. According to Mrs. Salmah, the Perlis-born heartthrob has known his girlfriend since the lovebirds were studying at Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Syed Alwi together.
“Latif is planning to get married in 2025. For now, he still wants to focus on his athletic career first. If it were up to me, I do believe that he’s still too young to get married at this time. Still, we have nothing against his decision. This is because our families have known each other for a long time,” she told the publication.
At the same time, Mrs. Salmah also revealed that the gold-medalist, who is the youngest of seven siblings, currently has no plans to end his bachelorhood as he is aiming to take part in the next Paralympic Games. “He informed us that he will only plan to start a family after the Paralympic Games in Paris,” the elderly lady was quoted as saying.
Having said that, plenty of “brokenhearted” female fans have taken to social media to express their frustration upon learning about the shocking news. Some of the reactions left by them include:
- “Abdul Latif’s future wife is so lucky. Not only he’s good at sports, he’s also attractive and nice looking!”
- “Oh no, he’s about to get married already? My heart just shattered to pieces.”
- “Following Remy Ishak (Abdul Latif’s lookalike)’s marriage news, my heart is once again broken because of this revelation!”
- “He’s not only good-looking, but he’s also loyal. They’ve known each other since back during their school days. May his plans come true.”
Congrats in advance to both Abdul Latif and also his partner. ;)
