Michael Clarke has arrived back in his home country after leaving Australia's tour of New Zealand to support his fiancée Lara Bingle. Bingle is suing former boyfriend and Australian Rules football player Brendan Fevola over nude photographs allegedly taken during their relationship that were later distributed without her permission.

The pictures appeared in an Australian magazine last week. Bingle, 22, said she was humiliated by the photos' publication. Clarke's manager, Chris White, said: "Michael has arrived home to support Lara through this difficult time."
