Brazilian gymnast Arthur Mariano has a message for Zac Efron: stay away from Simone Biles.

The bronze medalist, who Biles has playfully called her "Brazilian boyfriend," posted an adorable photo of the two hugging while he kisses the 2016 Olympic individual all-around, vault and floor champion on the cheek.

"Hey @zacefron I saw her first...She is my girl," he wrote in the caption, adding in Portuguese that the two have "been together" since 2013.

Mariano's post came a day after Biles, a self-proclaimed Efron fangirl, met the "Neighbors" actor when he surprised the Final Five in Rio on the "Today" show.

The Baywatch actor later admitted that he was just as nervous to meet Biles after watching her incredible run at the Olympics.

“They won gold medals; they were crushing it the entire Olympics, and I was, like, hiding in a closet waiting to come in, so I didn’t know what to think,” Efron told "Today" show co-host Hoda Kotb. “I was kind of getting nervous myself, but it ended up being so sweet.”
