Cape Town - South African Olympic medallist Cameron van der Burgh is officially off the market!

The star breaststroke swimmer wed his long-time girlfriend Nefeli Valakelis in Greece on Monday.

The pair have been engaged since December 2016 after Van der Burgh proposed in the Swiss Alps.

Their wedding took place at the Ktima 48 in Anavyssos and was a star-studded affair with fellow Olympic swimming medal winners Chad le Clos and Ryk Neethling in attendance.

Highlights of the wedding will be broadcast on SABC3's lifestyle show Top Billing.

Van der Burgh, 30, has an impressive swimming resume, with a gold and silver medal from the 2012 London and 2016 Rio Olympics, respectively, as well as four Commonwealth Games gold medals, two silvers and three bronzes.

Friends, who were present at the couple's nuptials, shared various images on social media:
