NIALL Horan used a short break from One Direction's world tour to take in some tennis at Wimbledon – and to meet Rory McIlroy's ex.

Former world number one Caroline Wozniacki posted a photograph of the pair online, saying it was the "highlight of her day".

It was a brief stop at the tournament for the Mullingar singer who is currently on a world tour with his band.

The popstar and bandmate Liam Payne both attracted as much attention as the players when they appeared in the stands yesterday.

Niall sipped on a beer while supporting friend Heather Watson, during her second-round match.

Just 24 hours earlier they were performing on stage in Amsterdam for the band's 'We Are One' tour.

Niall recently caused a stir on Twitter after he asked fans not to throw things at the stage, claiming that he had been injured by a flying object.

"Can you limit what gets thrown on stage please! Coz something thrown at me tonight! Hit my knee! A lot of pain from it!" the singer tweeted.

The 20-year-old was interviewed by Laura Robson, before posing for pictures with the British women's No1, who was forced out of the tournament due to injury.

Former British Olympic athletes Steve Redgrave and Jonathan Edwards were among other celebrity faces spotted in the crowds at Wimbledon.

Pippa Middleton and her brother James also seen attended the fourth day of the grass tournament, meeting 'Downton Abbey' star Michelle Dockery.

Niall and the rest of the band will head to Milan tomorrow to continue with their tour.
