The world’s No. 1 golfer Tiger Woods and his Swedish wife Elin Nordegren said on Monday they had divorced following the sex scandal that embroiled the golfing star late last year. A joint statement from the two, released by their lawyers, said the judgement dissolving the marriage was entered at the Bay County Circuit Court in Florida. “The judgment provides for shared parenting of their two children,” the statement said, asking for privacy for the family. “We are sad that our marriage is over and we wish each other the very best for the future,” the joint statement said.


Russian Plushenko banned indefinitely by ISU


Vancouver Olympics silver medallist Yevgeny Plushenko has been banned indefinitely by the International Skating Union (ISU) as he competed without permission in exhibitions earlier this year, it said on Tuesday. The Russian showman, who won Olympic gold at the 2006 Turin Games and also silver four years earlier in Salt Lake City, pulled out of the world championships in Italy in March citing an injury. But he went on to perform at figure skating exhibitions in March and April, the ISU said, without asking for permission. The ISU said on Tuesday Plushenko had not filed an appeal to their initial decision to ban him in June and so his ban was now upheld.
