McIlroy breaks off engagement to Wozniacki

London: 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.

"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."
