Rory-Wozniacki engagement off

The golfing wedding of the year is off after Rory McIlroy broke off his engagement to Caroline Wozniacki.

Two-time major champion McIlroy proposed to former tennis world number one Wozniacki on New Year’s Eve and they were due to get married this year.

However, the 25-year-old from Northern Ireland revealed on Wednesday that he is not yet ready to get married.

“There is no right way to end a relationship that has been so important to two people,” McIlroy said.

He added in the statement: “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.”
