Rafael van der Vaart has apologised after allegedly striking his wife Sylvie in front of guests at a New Year’s Eve party. The couple, who have been married for seven years and have one son, Damien, have announced their intention to split up over the incident, despite Sylvie claiming she had “forgiven him already“.

Footballers are notoriously poor at marriage maintenance, but those in the know deemed this one a keeper. Rafa supported model and TV presenter Sylvie after she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005, and his decision to return to former club Hamburg from Spurs last summer was reportedly influenced by his wife’s successful TV career in Germany.

Sad news indeed.
