Former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion, ‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor took to his official Twitter account this morning, worryingly tweeting and deleting “I can’t go on like this man. I am crushed here” in response to another user who claimed the U.K. could “have” McGregor, amid his recent arrest in Corsica for alleged attempted sexual assault and sexual exhibition.
The 32-year-old Dubliner was released from police custody on Saturday last, following questioning in relation to a reported September 6th. attempted sexual assault and indecent exposure at a bar in the port town of Calvi in Corsica, by a young married woman.
McGregor, who has spent the last number of weeks on the French island with his fiancée, Dee Devlin – is currently awaiting results of “key physical tests” which were carried out during his time in police custody, which would determine whether or not he’d be re-arrested.
McGregor was set to participate in a 180km marathon endurance race alongside Princess Charlene of Monaco to promote awareness surrounding water safety but withdrew from the event which began on September 12th.
Replying to a Twitter user who tagged McGregor in a story ran by the BBC which labelled McGregor as “English“, the user commented, “They can have him, the BBC is correct @TheNotoriousMMA (Conor McGregor) is English.”
In a series of responses which have since been deleted by McGregor, the Crumlin native worryingly penned, “I can’t go on like this man. I am crushed here.”
Firing back at the user, McGregor then followed up by criticising the user for advocating suicide prevention – before “insulting” him in the process.
“[You work in] suicide intervention yet 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.”
In a statement released to TMZ, a representative for McGregor told, how he has “vigorously denied any misconduct“.
