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

In what is undoubtedly one of the entertainment world's most unlikely of friendships, his Swedish model ex, - whom he divorced after it was revealed he had cheated with at least 24 different women -  is BFFs with his new girlfriend.

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.
