65-year-old Madonna has reportedly found love in the arms of a 34-year-old Nigerian boxer.

Madonna, the iconic American musician, is once again making headlines with her alleged new romance, this time with British-Nigerian boxer Richard Riakporhe.

Despite an age gap of 31 years, Madonna has sparked dating rumours having found companionship in the arms of the 6ft 5in athlete, just weeks after ending her year-long relationship with former flame Josh Popper.

In a now-deleted Instagram post, Madonna raised eyebrows by reportedly  sharing a photo of herself straddling Riakporhe, accompanied by the cheeky caption, "I had to sit somewhere."
