Star cricketer Shane Warne has thanked fans for supporting him after revelations about his reported romance with actress Elizabeth Hurley hit the headlines on Sunday.
Britain's News of the World reported the pair had spent two nights together at a London hotel last week, prompting the movie star to reveal she had parted from her husband Arun Nayar "months ago".
She later thanked fans for their support on Twitter and went on to reveal her heartache, saying, "Painful, sad days. Arun & I separated for private reasons but FTR (for the record) he has been a great father to our son Damian & will always be in his life."
Warne, who also confirmed he had split from the mother of his three children, Simone Callahan, has sent out a cheerier message to fans.
He writes, "Thank you very much for your lovely messages of best wishes... Appreciate them all... Oh and the constructive criticism!!! Hahahahahah."
