1. “It’s not great.” Jimmy Bartel addresses his rumoured split from wife Nadia.
Jimmy Bartel has responded to rumours that he has split with his wife of five years, Nadia Bartel, with whom he shares two children.
On Saturday, while on radio station 3AW, the AFL player did not confirm the rumours, but did admit, “It’s not great”.
“I am probably not going to provide any commentary on it,” he said.
“I know I am in the public eye and people are interested, but it is a private matter and I ask for a bit of respect because obviously Nadia and the boys [are] involved.”
Asked if he’ll continue to be at work in light of the difficult time, Bartel responded: “I still enjoy coming to work and I love working with everybody in football. I love the game so I can’t see why I wouldn’t keep showing up for work.”

Rumours of the split began last week after the two unfollowed each other on Instagram. Jimmy has also since made his profile, where he has over 100,000 followers, private.
Nadia and Jimmy Bartel share two sons: Aston, four years old, and Henley, one.
