Golf star Rory McIlroy has broken off his engagement with tennis player Caroline Wozniacki, he announced today.
The Northern Irish golfer and former world number one said the relationship ended after he realised he was not ready for marriage.
"There is no right way to end a relationship that has been so important to two people," McIlroy said.
He added: "The problem is mine. The wedding invitations issued at the weekend made me realise that I wasn't ready for all that marriage entails.
"I wish Caroline all the happiness she deserves and thank her for the great times we've had. I will not be saying anything more about our relationship in any setting."
