But the 47-year-old has now confirmed his withdrawal, saying on X: “Hi guys, just wanted to let you know I’m unfortunately withdrawing from the Champions (sic) of Champions event tomorrow.
Hi guys, just wanted to let you know I’m unfortunately withdrawing from the Champions of champions event tomorrow. Mentally I feel a bit drained and stressed and I want to look after my mental health and my body. I’m sorry to all the fans but I’ll be back stronger 👍🏼
