Golfer Rory McIlroy and tennis star Caroline Wozniacki have added to the intrigue over their apparent break-up by chatting with each other on social media.
McIlroy (24) took to social media site Twitter yesterday for the first time in days.
But instead of confirming the break-up outright, McIlroy said that informed sources were "wrong 99.9pc of the time". He did not deny the split.
After McIlroy's comment, Wozniacki responded to his tweet saying: "Ha ha. That's not a very good percentage. Lol (laugh out loud)"
The Irish Independent reported that their relationship ended recently and that Wozniacki, who owns a home in Monaco, is devastated.
Reports in other media said that the golfer was advised by his management team to announce the end of his two-year relationship with the Dane last Friday at the press conference following his second round of The Barclays at Liberty National in New Jersey.
However, the Co Down native remained quiet on his personal life and it is believed the two-time Major winner is deciding on the best time to announce news.
There was initial speculation after fans noticed that the couple had both changed their Twitter profile pictures from a 'his and hers' shot, to a single portrait.
"Just because we changed our Twitter profile picture doesn't mean that we're not together," the golfer said.
