    World number one golfer Tiger Woods and his wife Elin Nordegren have divorced.

    The pair's lawyers broke the news on Woods' website, saying a Florida court had dissolved the marriage in a judgement that provides for shared parenting of their two children.

    Woods and Nordegren said in a statement: "We are sad that our marriage is over and we wish each other the very best for the future.

    While we are no longer married, we are the parents of two wonderful children and their happiness has been, and will always be, of paramount importance to both of us.

    "Once we came to the decision that our marriage was at an end, the primary focus of our amicable discussions has been to ensure their future well-being. The weeks and months ahead will not be easy for them as we adjust to a new family situation, which is why our privacy must be a principal concern."
