An emotional Rory McIlroy has announced he has broken off his engagement and split with Danish tennis star Caroline Wozniacki, only days after sending out their wedding invitations.
The 25-year-old Northern Irishman and two-time major champion said the issuing of the invitations had made him aware that he was not ready for marriage.
Their shock split comes just weeks after they were pictured kissing and giggling together at the US Masters.
McIlroy and Wozniacki were arguably sport's highest profile couple.
