Alonso chooses the Maldives

30 Nov 2006

World racing champion Fernando Alonso jetted out to the Maldives with Spanish singer Raquel del Rosario last weekend for a romantic break.

Spanish newspaper reports claimed the 25-year-old had married del Rosario on the exotic islands in the company of fifty wedding guests brought to join them by private jet.

But Alonso's manager has forcibly denied the reports.

The couple were simply holidaying with family and friends, according to the racer's representative Luis Garcia Abad, speaking to Spain's Marca paper, a sports daily.

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, meanwhile, are honeymooning in the Maldives, after they wed in an Italian castle in a Scientology ceremony attended by celebrity guests.

The couple, whose courtship has invited close media scrutiny, are cruising around the Indian Ocean island chain on a yacht.
