It has been reported that McIlroy has called time on his relationship with Caroline Wozniacki to refocus on his golf game after a disastrous 12 months which has seen him slip down the world rankings.

For the last two years, Rory McIlroy and tennis golden girl Caroline Wozniacki have been one of sports most gamorous couples.

Over the last year, press and social media stories have reported an alleged series of problems in the relationship including that Wozniacki was 'too controlling'. Sources close to the pair claim the Irish golfer finally broke off from the Danish tennis star days after she posted an unflatterring picture on Twitter showing him fast asleep and open-mouthed with his glasses on. Wozniacki is said to be 'absolutely devastated' by the split.

This week McIlroy embarks on a lucrative tour of Asia hoping to recreate his star talent.
