A copy of the alleged statement Tiger Woods will deliver at a press conference tomorrow has been leaked.

Representatives for the disgraced golfer say that it is not legitimate.

US radio station WYCD said it had received a copy of the statement but later removed the text from its website.

Among the claims in the leaked statement are that "things have not worked out" between Woods and wife Elin Nordegren and that they will separate.

The statement also says that Woods takes "complete responsibility" for what he has put his "wife and family through".

TMZ which initially broke the story now claims the statement is a fake.
