Conor McGregor said today that 'I can't go on like this' following his arrest on suspicion of attempted sexual assault in France.
The Irish MMA star hit back at a Twitter user who sneered that the UK 'can have him', referring to a BBC article which suggested that McGregor was British.
The 32-year-old said the comments were 'ridiculing' him at a 'horrendous time in my life', saying: '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,' he added, venting his fury at someone who described themselves as a 'suicide prevention specialist'.
In a subsequent post, he wrote: 'I can't go on like this man. I am crushed here.'
McGregor later deleted the posts, a day after it was claimed that he had 'exhibited his private parts' to a young married woman in a bar on the island of Corsica.

A friend of the alleged victim told broadcaster France 3 Corse that McGregor 'exhibited his private bars' to the woman as she made her way to the toilets.
McGregor was released without charge, but the criminal case is still active and he could be summoned before a magistrate later this week.
'Key physical tests were carried out on the suspect, but the results will not be known until after the weekend,' an investigating source said on Sunday.
'These tests are of a routine nature following incidents like this, but they take time, to make sure there is no doubt about them.
