Caroline Wozniacki has said that "people need to move on from the past" when it comes to her ex Rory McIlroy.

The Irish golfer ended his engagement to the tennis player in May of last year, months before their wedding.

And she found herself back in the headlines after she wished new US Masters Champion Jordan Spieth her congratulations, while many noted he beat her ex to the title in Augusta, Georgia.

"Congratulations to @JordanSpieth on winning @TheMasters! Extremely impressive how he came out firing from the start and never looked back," she wrote this morning, wishing the 21-year-old well on his first major title.

However, she later cleared up that the well wishes weren't a dig at her former fiance, who is in a fresh rivalry with the new Masters victory.

"Tweeps I was congratulating Speith on his win, nothing else.. It's time for some of you to move on from the past. Thank you!"
