    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Russian-born Australian figure skater Ekaterina Alexandrovskaya is believed to have taken her own life in Moscow on Saturday, a police source told Sputnik.

    "It is suspected to be suicide", the source said, adding that the 20-year-old left a note behind that read "in love".

    Commenting on the death of the skater, Harley Windsor, who has been her partner since 2016, confirmed that it might have been suicide. He also published a post on Instagram expressing his grief and saying he was devastated by the unexpected passing of Alexandrovskaya.

    The figure skater became a World Junior champion together with Windsor, in 2017 and won the Junior Grand Prix Final the same year. They also won the Australian championship twice - in 2017 and 2019.
