Rupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall have been pictured together for the first time at the final of the Rugby World Cup since news of their relationship went public.
The new couple posed outside Twickenham station, both wearing Australian scarfs and carrying Australian flags.
The romance between media mogul Murdoch (84) and former model Hall (59) has hit the headlines this week after it was revealed in the Mail on Sunday.
Australian-reared Murdoch and Hall were introduced to one another by his sisters and his niece, and the pair are said to have gotten to know one another better following a break spent in California and New York. The couple’s first date is said to have been a Broadway Show.
Murdoch whose corporations include The Sun newspaper and Fox News, has not had a serious relationship since his marriage to Wendi Deng (46) ended in 2013.
Prior to his marriage to Ms Deng, Murdoch was married to Patricia Brooker and Anna Torv.
Ms Hall was previously in a long-standing relationship with Rolling Stones front man Mick Jagger with whom she has four children, Elizabeth Scarlett (31), James (30), Georgia (23) and Gabriel Luke (17).
The pair wed in an unoffical ceremony in Bali in 1990 but this union was declared null and void by the High Court of England and Wales following their pair's split in 1999.
“He is very fond of her,' a friend of Murdoch’s revealed.
“There is no question that they are a couple.”
