Sam Kerr, an Australian footballer, is said to have split with long-term partner Nikki Stanton before of the Tokyo Olympics.
Kerr and Stanton have terminated their high-profile romance after more than seven years together, according to The Daily Telegraph, prompting rumours about the Australian Olympian’s dating life.
Kerr, who is 27 years old, is said to have told pals she had “fallen out of love” with Stanton, whom she met in 2014.
On the social networking platform Instagram, the two have also unfollowed one other.
Stanton is a member of the Chicago Red Stars in the National Soccer League, while Kerr is a member of Chelsea in the Women’s Super League.
Kerr’s recently discovered single status has sparked rumours about her dating life, with some admirers speculating that she has already found a new boyfriend.
Following Thursday’s bronze medal match, which the United States won 4-3, the Matildas captain and American player Kristie Mewis were photographed hugging on the pitch.
Kerr and Mewis have been “flirting” on social media for several months, according to social media sleuths.
One Twitter user shared a string of 18 Instagram comments the two had exchanged since March.
Last month, Mewis commented on a photo of Kerr with her Matildas teammates, saying, “Glad to see you’re committing to your new number.”
“I’m committing to you more than two,” Kerr said.
During the bronze medal match, Kerr became the Matildas’ all-time leading goalscorer, surpassing Lisa De Vanna with her 48th international goal.
During the Tokyo Olympics, she scored six goals in six games.
“I truly feel that no matter who I’m playing against, where I’m playing, or what minute it is, my team will get it to me, and that’s been something throughout the tournament,” Kerr said last week.
“Every goal I’ve scored has come as a result of outstanding goalkeeping. Every single goal we’ve scored has come from something that was started by someone else.”
