McIlroy breaks off engagement to Wozniacki
(05-21 17:19)

Rory McIlroy on Wednesday announced he had broken off his engagement to Danish tennis player Caroline Wozniacki only days after sending out the wedding invitations.
The 24-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, AFP reports.
"There is no right way to end a relationship that has been so important to two people,'' the two-time major champion explained through a statement issued by his Dublin-based communications consultants.
"The problem is mine,'' McIlroy said.
"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.''
