The move comes after comments from his former girlfriend Ulrika Jonsson to The Sun where she claims his campaign about Twitter's inaction over a series of racist messages was "ironic" because he hit her in the past.

The 43-year-old, who is now working as a football broadcaster, posted a series of tweets before seemingly deleting his account.

He said the newspaper was "a disgrace" and although he admitted he was "ashamed" of the night when he hit Miss Jonsson, he added that his ex-girlfriend was "lying and reinventing history."
