LONDON: The wife of England cricketer Ben Stokes has dismissed media speculations of a physical altercation between the couple.

Her reaction came after pictures emerged which appeared to show Ben Stokes grabbing his wife’s face during last week’s Professional Cricketers’ Association awards.

Clare Stokes took to Twitter to defend her husband.

She also posted a photo of her pushing the cricketer’s face in apparent mockery of the images that surfaced from the awards night, held in London on Wednesday.

“Unbelievable what nonsense these people will make up!” she said.

“Me and Ben messing about squishing up each other’s faces cos that’s how we show affection and some pap tries to twist it into a crazy story! And all before we then have a romantic McDonalds 20 mins later!”

The New Zealand-born cricketer responded to his wife’s tweet with a face blowing a kiss emoji.
