Tennis ace Boris Becker's fiancée broke up with him via text message.
Becker, 40, and 25-year-old Alessandra Meyer-Woelden announced their engagement in August, but Becker admitted the pair had gone their separate ways earlier this month.
And the star has revealed he was dumped by a message sent to his phone - a move that "trampled on my soul".
He told German newspaper Bild: "I suddenly got an SMS from Sandy... Saying this was it, that's it, it is over.
"To make sure how serious she was she sent me five others saying the same thing. I was completely surprised."
