MotoGP star Miguel Oliveira, who won his first race at the recent Styria Grand Prix, is engaged to his own step-sister.

Oliveira is set to marry Andreia Pimenta with the couple having known each other since they were 13 and having had a secret relationship for 11 years before going public in 2019.

Pimenta is the daughter of Oliveira's father's second wife Cristina, who will now become Oliveira’s mother in law as well as step mother, with the MotoGP star’s father speaking about the upcoming wedding.

Paulo told Marca: "I'm happy that my son is getting married to the woman of his life."

The pair appear to have been engaged since last summer with a wedding originally planned for this summer before the MotoGP calendar was changed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The racer recently opened up on the relationship, saying: “Before love there was a great friendship. We grew up together.

“At some point we realised that it was more than a friendship, it is a very strong love.
