The Independent Online

American telecommunications giant AT&T has ended its sponsorship deal with Tiger Woods.

The world No 1 announced earlier this month that he was taking an "indefinite" break from golf in order to save his marriage, having admitted being unfaithful to his wife, Elin.

An AT&T statement read: "We are ending our sponsorship agreement with Tiger Woods and wish him well in the future."

Fellow sponsor Accenture has already ended its association with Woods, while Swiss watchmaker TAG Heuer has announced it is to "downscale the use of his image" in its advertising.
