Nathan Lyon's wife heads to Fiji as he returns to Sydney

The partner and children of Australian cricket star Nathan Lyon have escaped to Fiji for a holiday, in the same week he returned home to Sydney for the final Ashes Test.

Mel Waring took to Instagram on Monday to post happy snaps from the beginning of her overseas vacation, which she is taking with her two young children and a friend.
