Media reports that former world golf number one Rory McIlroy and leading women's Caroline Wozniacki have ended a two year relationship have been dimissed by Wozniacki.

Wozniacki has told the Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet the stories are rumours and called on the media to end the speculation about the relationship.

The reports coincideed with the start of legal action McIlroy has launched against his former management company Horizon Sports, apparently because of the commission the Dublin firm was charging for its services.

The 24 year old McIlroy started this year as world number one, and in January he signed a 10-year contract with club manufacturers Nike believed to be worth 300-million dollars.

He hasn't won a title this year and he's slumped to 6th in the world rankings.
