The pair stood with their respective lawyers in a conference room in Panama City, Florida in front of Judge Judy Biebel. Their divorce cost $397.50 (£256).

Miss Nordegren was said to have had eight lawyers present, according to celebrity website TMZ.

Woods was sitting down as Miss Nordegren entered the room and they did not look at each other, a source told celebrity website Radar Online.

She filed a three page petition for divorce.

According to the divorce papers they finalised their separation on July 3 and July 4.

Woods has already undergone a four hour parenting class costing $39 (£25) which is required of all parents who divorce.

Miss Nordegren also underwent the course earlier this month.

The custody of their two children was at the heart of discussions between lawyers ahead of the divorce.

It is believed they will live primarily with Miss Nordegren, who may return to Sweden, but Woods will have regular access.

According to reports he will not be allowed to introduce new girlfriends to the children.
