A British newspaper reports that Australian cricketer Shane Warne is in a relationship with British actress Liz Hurley.
CANNES, FRANCE ( MAY 23, 2006) REUTERS - Former Australian cricketer Shane Warne headed home from England on Friday night (December 10) two days before a British newspaper reported he was having an affair with a British actress.
The News of the World reported on Sunday (December 12) that Warne, who was in the U.K. to do some filming for a television show, had spent two nights in a hotel with actress and model Liz Hurley during his stay in London. The newspaper also published photographs of the pair embracing.
After the article appeared, Hurley announced on her Twitter page that she had separated from her husband Arun Nayar "a few months ago". The couple have been married since 2007.
Spin bowler Warne, who is divorced, is as famous for generating tabloid headlines as he is for his match-winning performances,
The 41-year-old remains one of Australia's greatest cricketers, who occasionally made fools of the world's best batsmen during a 16-year international career. He took 708 test wickets before he retired in 2007.
