A veteran of several cricketing battles, Shane Warne is seemingly fighting hard to save his relationship with British actress and model Elizabeth Hurley. According to media reports, Warne cancelled a high-profile event in Melbourne on Wednesday to launch his own foundation's ambassadors programme, fuelling speculation that relationship with Hurley was over. He is expected to fly to London this week. (Related read: Shane Warne-Liz Hurley to call it quits?)
According to reports in the Australian and British media, Warne is lying low after splitting with the former model and actress. The rumours come exactly two years since Warne proposed to Hurley following a whirlwind romance. In September 2011, the lovebirds got engaged.
In spite of not reaching out to each other for several weeks, both Warne and Hurley broke their 'silence' on Wednesday. A devastated Warne has tweeted: "Some of the reports re EH & me r absolute rubbish. Yes we're sorting through some (private) issues. But we're not throwing the towel in yet."
