Tiger Woods' Olympian girlfriend Lindsey Vonn has struck up a close friendship with his ex-wife Elin Nordegren, it has been revealed.

Woods has been dating Olympic gold medalist Vonn since March 2013.
Elin originally wanted to get to know the skier because she would be spending time with their children Sam (six) and Charlie (five).
"After meeting her, she found she actually liked her," an insider told Us Weekly.
"You'd think it would be weird, but Elin loves Lindsey and they talk all the time.
"Elin likes that Lindsey is a strong woman."
"Lindsey is really good for Tiger. She's strong, opinionated, and keeps him in line."
"Elin found that they are very similar and have a lot in common. They laugh and talk like they have been girlfriends forever."
Nordegren has just moved into a Palm Beach mansion worth an estimated $20m after receiving an incredible $100m from her 2010 divorce settlement with the world's former number one golfer.
She has kept her romantic life under wraps, she was last linked to billionaire coal magnate Chris Cline.
