Rory McIlroy and Caroline Wozniacki have announced their engagement.

The golfer and tennis star, celebrating the New Year in Sydney where Wozniacki is preparing for the Australian Open, took to Twitter to break the news.

Wozniacki tweeted: "Happy New Year everyone! Rory and I started 2014 with a bang! ... I said YES!!!!"

The pair began dating in the summer of 2011, soon after McIlroy won his maiden major in the US Open at Congressional.

Reports in August claimed the couple had gone their separate ways.
