Conor McGregor has stated that he “can’t go on like this” in a worrying update on Twitter.

The recently retired MMA icon was arrested last week for alleged 'sexual assault and sexual exhibition' in Corsica, and his team have since strenuously denied any accusation of misconduct.

Daily Star Sport were told on Saturday: "Conor McGregor vigorously denies any accusation of misconduct. He has been interviewed and released."

The 32-year-old has since broken his silence with a series of now deleted comments on social media in which he mentioned that he is struggling to stay strong for his family, which will worry his supporters.

The interaction came after an article had incorrectly referred to the UFC icon as English, after which a Twitter user wrote: ”They can have him. The BBC is correct, he is English."

McGregor said in response: "[You work in] suicide intervention yet [you are] ridiculing me in this manner online, at this horrendous time in my life.

"I am trying to stay strong for my kids and the people that rely on me and that love and support me. Thanks for the insults, hypocrite.

"I can’t go on like this man. I am crushed here."

According to the AFP news agency, the Irishman was arrested and taken into custody following an incident at the weekend.

A statement from the prosecutor read: "Following a complaint filed on September 10 denouncing acts that could be described as attempted sexual assault and sexual exhibition, Mr. Conor Anthony Mac Gregor [sic] was the subject of a hearing by the police."

That came after McGregor shared images of himself on a yacht with his family, during which time he was visited by USADA testers despite his retirement from UFC earlier this year.
