To examine the detailed structure of low-energy magnetic excitations in a high-transition-temperature superconducting cuprate with heavily hole-doping, we performed inelastic neutron scattering experiments on La$$_{1.75}$$Sr$$_{0.25}$$CuO$$_{4}$$. We observed clear dispersion relations of the previously reported incommensurate (IC) magnetic correlations at $$Q_{rm tet}$$ = (0.5 $$pm$$ $$delta$$, 0.5)/(0.5, 0.5 $$pm$$ $$delta$$). In addition, we show the emergence of continuum magnetic excitations with a ring shape centered at $$Gamma$$ point $$Q_{rm tet}=(0.5, 0.5)$$ in a constant energy spectrum at $$T$$ = 50 K. The radius of the ring ($$r$$ = 0.109) is smaller than the incommensurability ($$delta$$ = 0.118). This suggests that the origin of the ring-like excitations is different from that of the IC magnetic correlations, and the low-energy magnetic excitations of the La$$_{2-x}$$Sr$$_{x}$$CuO$$_{4}$$ system are inherently composed of these two kinds of excitations.
