Elin Nordegren breaks silence over divorce

Elin Nordegren has finally spoken to the media about the breakdown of her marriage to US golfer Tiger Woods.

The former model told People magazine that she has been through a very difficult time but is confident that her decision to divorce the sports star was the right one.

Ms Nordegren and Woods' relationship was brought into the spotlight last November after he suffered a car crash outside the marital home.

Several women came forth afterward claiming to have had affairs with the golfer during his six-year marriage to Ms Nordegren.

Their divorce was finalised earlier this week, after which the 30-year-old mother of two revealed to the publication that she has "been through the stages of disbelief and shock, to anger and ultimately grief over the loss of the family I so badly wanted for my children".

"[But] I also feel stronger than I ever have. I have confidence in my beliefs, my decisions and myself," she added.
