Travis Kelce had a very smart answer up his sleeve when he was quizzed once again on his relationship status with Taylor Swift ahead of the Super Bowl in Las Vegas.
After an outstanding season up to now on the field, the Chiefs tight end is in demand across Vegas this week as the hype builds up to the biggest night in the American sporting calendar.
Inevitably, questions have turned to girlfriend Swift – who is expected to race back to Vegas from Japan, where she is currently performing four straight nights of Eras tour shows.
Kelce was asked if he would propose to the singer – who he went public in his relationship with back in September – if the Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night at Allegiant Stadium.
Taking the question in good grace, Kelce responded by underlining his concentration on winning his third Super Bowl title: ‘I’m focused on getting this ring and that’s all my mind’s focused on right now.’

Sunday will be Kelce’s fourth Super Bowl in five years and furthermore, is a chance to win the title two years straight.
Speaking on the opening night of the Super Bowl on Monday, Kelce said he wanted to match his girlfriend’s Grammy success with a title of his own.
‘She’s unbelievable. She’s rewriting the history books herself. I told her I’ll have to hold up my end of the bargain and come home with some hardware, too,’ he said.
The 34-year-old also acknowledged that thousands of her fans will be cheering him on during Sunday’s game.
‘She’s definitely brought a lot of new faces to the game, and it’s been fun to experience that,’ he said.
‘Taylor has an unbelievable fanbase that follows her and supports her throughout her life.
‘It’s been fun to kind of gather the Swifties into Chiefs Kingdom and open them up to the football world and sports world. It’s been cool to experience that.’
