Fans love skating lessons from Tessa Virtue and Morgan Rielly of the Leafs

If you’re looking to learn to skate, you’d be hard pressed to find a better group of celebrity teachers than Tessa Virtue and Morgan Rielly.

Three-time Olympic figure skating medalist Virtue and Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Rielly were skating together ahead of the Heritage Classic outdoor game this weekend in Hamilton.

While skating with friends and family on Saturday, the pair were joined by Virtue’s niece, Poppy, for a skating lesson.

Fans had a bit of a strong reaction to the moment, a rare public appearance with Virtue and Rielly together:

Virtue and Rielly and have been an item for at least two years now, having made a public appearance together in March 2020 as part of the Arkells band Instagram live at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

They’ve mostly kept their relationship private, with a few other social media posts together, though Virtue shared the couple’s Halloween costume last fall.

Virtue retired from competitive skating in 2018 following his second Olympic gold medal in ice dancing with longtime partner Scott Moir, although the pair returned to previous Olympics as part of the Olympic team. CBC commentators.

The puck drop is scheduled for today at 4 p.m. ET. This is the Leafs’ fourth road game with Rielly, the only Toronto player to appear in all of the team’s road games in history.

However, it is not yet known whether Virtue and Rielly will offer post-game lessons to the general public.
