Danish tennis star Caroline Wozniacki showed off the huge diamond engagement ring she received from Co Down golfer Rory McIlroy on New Year's Eve.

Speaking to the media on the second day of the Sydney International the former world number one and future Mrs McIlroy was beaming from ear-to-ear.

She frequently gestured with her left hand giving photographers ample opportunity to get the perfect shot of the sparkling diamond, thought be valued at around £120,000.

The 23-year-old, who withdrew from a WTA event in Brisbane last week due to a shoulder injury, was making her sixth appearance at the Sydney tournament as she makes preparations for the Australian Open.

At yesterday's Press conference Caroline's cushion cut diamond, thought to be approximately five carats, with a halo of small round brilliant diamonds surrounding it, was offset by a pair of diamond earrings.

Wozniacki has revealed McIlroy sought her parents' blessing before asking the tennis ace to be his wife last week.

"He had asked my parents for permission, like traditional, which was great," she said.

"They were very happy for me, and his parents as well and everyone around us. It's a special moment, a special time in our lives."
