Wladimir Klitschko - Wladimir Klitschko Breaks Up With Hayden Panettiere

Wladimir Klitschko, the Ukrainian heavyweight boxer, has split from his Hollywood actress girlfriend Hayden Panettiere after nearly two years of dating, reports People Magazine. Wladimir Klitschko, who is busy preparing for a world championship fight with British boxer David Haye, says he and the actress had "a great time together".
The couple say their work commitments are to blame for the split, noting that they are constantly living in different places. In a statement, Panettiere said, "Even though we've decided splitting up is best for both of us, we have an amazing amount of love and respect for each other and remain very close friends". The 35-year-old boxer said they couldn't manage to sustain a relationship whilst living on two different continents, adding, "I have a lot of respect for Hayden as a person and as a friend, and I believe we'll keep our friendship even after the situation". The couple were last photographed together at the recent Tribeca Film Festival in New York, where they attending a documentary about the Klitschko brothers' boxing career. When Wladimir appeared on Bbc Breakfast news earlier today (12th May 2011) he spoke of Panettiere as "his girlfriend".
Wladimir Klitschko is 6ft 6in in height, while the Heroes star Panettiere is just 5ft 1in. The actress had previously joked about the size difference during an appearance on the Ellen Degeneres show.
