‘Despite our best efforts in trying to make our marriage work, we have come to the decision to go our separate ways. It has been an extremely difficult time and a tough decision to make.
‘We want to look ahead to the future and stay positive. We would both gratefully appreciate our privacy being respected as we navigate what is a deeply personal time for us.’
The couple were in a relationship during the 2008 Olympics when Mr Gardner was still a member of Team GB’s cycling coaching team.

The sportswoman and jockey had previously admitted that her husband would have preferred her not to go on the Everest adventure with TV presenter Ben Fogle last May.
She said: ‘In an ideal world, he would like to be able to stop me, but he knows that won’t make me happy.’
When asked about Mr Gardner’s feelings following her return from the climb, she said: ‘Yes, he thinks I am nuts for coming up here, so he’ll be glad that I am back.
‘He just thinks I am a bit crazy.’
