Hawthorn star Tom Mitchell and lifestyle influencer Hannah Davis have reportedly ended their glamorous relationship after three years.

The pair turned heads at the 2018 Brownlow Medal, which Mitchell won, but have since separated as Davis has reportedly moved to Byron Bay to further her career as a pilates instructor.

The Herald Sun reported Mitchell and Davis no longer follow each other on Instagram after they 'quietly separated' several months ago.

Davis, who quit her job as a PR professional to pursue her career in pilates on Jesinta Franklin's app, is close friends with Lucy Brownless, the daughter of AFL great Billy Brownless.

Both she and Davis have reportedly moved up to Byron Bay from Melbourne.

Earlier in their relationship, Mitchell credited Davis for helping achieve a much higher level of fitness and professionalism that led to him winning the 2018 Brownlow Medal.

“In summary my diet wasn’t too flash,” he said.

“Pre-game routine consisted of a box of Barbecue Shapes and a Kit Kat and some Starburst every night. I am now on a strict salmon diet.

“It can be a challenge to get away from at times.

“I’ve had great support around me; my girlfriend Hannah, family and friends who have got me through and have made it a lot easier for me to enjoy my football."

Similarly, Davis credited Mitchell's influence in the past for her decision to move on from PR and into her pilates career.

“Don’t get me wrong, I loved my job, but it was one of those things as I got a bit older — what am I passionate about?” Davis said.

“A big part of it was Tom, because I just found that being with him and watching him really go for what he wanted and his dreams, I was like, ‘I need to do something with my life that I’m also passionate about’. I’m just so grateful for my job.”

Nathan Buckley feeling heat of Magpies' season

Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley concedes the blowtorch on the Magpies' disastrous AFL campaign is having an impact on morale.

The heat on Buckley's coaching future went to new levels after Collingwood's defeat - their fifth straight - to Gold Coast last Saturday placed the off-field powerhouse in 17th on the ladder with a 1-6 record.

In his 10th season as coach of the club he starred for as a player, the out-of-contract Buckley claims he would not be human if the pressure did not get to him.

"What I would say is that we're not robots. We're full of imperfect humans in this place, we're not infallible and bulletproof," Buckley said.

"We feel like everyone else. When things aren't going well, what I find with our crew is that they take a lot of responsibility on themselves before they put it on someone else.

"The leadership challenge is to assist individuals out of that mindset.

"It does have an impact but you can have positive momentum just the same as you can have negative momentum."
