Australian cricket great Ellyse Perry and Rugby star Matt Toomua have announced an end to their marriage.
Perry, who recently won the T20 World Cup, and Toomua went public in 2013 and tied the knot two years later.

But in unfortunate news, the pair made an official announcement in a joint statement on Sunday.
“It’s with the greatest of respect for one another that we decided to separate earlier this year,” the pair said in a joint statement on Saturday.
“We felt this was the right course of action and is in the best interests of each other and our current lives. This is something that has evolved and is a mutual decision.
“Throughout our relationship we have remained private and we ask that our space and privacy continue to be respected during this difficult time for both of us.”
Perry is considered Australia’s best female cricketer and picked up her third straight Belinda Clark award earlier this year.
Toomua is currently playing for the Melbourne Rebels and played a pivotal role in his team’s victory over the Waratahs on Friday night.
Toomua masterclass as Rebels beat Waratahs
Toomua inspired the Rebels to a 29-10 win for their first back-to-back Super Rugby victories over the Waratahs.
The Rebels snapped a six-game losing streak against the Tahs earlier this year and a masterclass from Wallaby fly-half Toomua was again at the heart of their performance.
He booted five penalties and two conversions while directing operations from midfield as his side scored two tries to Waratahs' one.
It handed them a maiden victory in Super Rugby AU, after a draw and a loss.
“A bit of a reward, we had a really good week's prep and it paid off,” said Rebels captain Dane Haylett-Petty.
“From the very first minute we felt like we controlled the game and we were able to close it out this time, turn pressure into points at the end.”
The Waratahs have managed only one victory from four in the domestic competition, with ill-discipline costly them dearly, conceding 17 penalties on Friday.
Alex Newsome, the stand-in skipper after Rob Simmons went off injured, admitted they gave away too much possession and paid the price for twice being reduced to 14 men.
“I think (ill-discipline) has been a bit of an issue for us this whole competition and it snuck in again today,” he said.
“Too many rolling away penalties and offsides and it’s really hurting us.
“But full credit to the Rebels, they had 70 percent possession and 70 percent territory. They got the jump on us physically tonight as well.”
