Celebrating the win on the oval at The Gabba, notoriously private star Dustin Martin warmly embraced a blonde friend.

Dustin understandably could not hide his delight over his team’s win, as he walked over to the blonde in the grandstand and hugged her tightly.

He lifted the smiling woman off her feet as he emotionally embraced her, the pair sharing a few words before parting ways.  

It’s unclear who the blonde beauty is, and whether she is a friend or relative of the footballer. 

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Dustin Martin’s management for comment.

The Tigers roared to victory on Saturday night, overcoming the Cats 81 to 50 after an incredible come-back in the third quarter and heroic efforts from Dustin. 

Dustin, who kicked four goals and 21 disposals, thanked the AFL, Toyota, the government and Richmond Football Club while receiving the Norm Smith Medal.  

‘First of all, I would just like to thank Geelong for an awesome game,’ he said.

‘You’re an awesome club. Well done to Gaz (Gary Ablett) on your unbelievable career. To the AFL, Toyota, the government, last but not least, the Richmond footy club. Let’s go.’
