He admitted: "[I’m] quite sad it’s over because I still care about her deeply and she’s a wonderful person.

"I suppose it was the sporting world meeting her world… It was one of those things where we just collided.

“When she first came to Australia we had been seeing each other for about six months or so, so I didn’t introduce her to my children until it was real and I believed it had a future - it wasn’t just a bit of fun.

“So six months down the track she finally comes to meet the children in Australia and it was an absolute circus.

“I mean, the next door neighbour’s kids were selling cordial for a buck out the front!"
