Conor McGregor tweeted “I can’t go on like this” after being attacked by a follower following his arrest after he exposed himself to a young woman in a Calvi bar.
McGregor was arrested in Corsica last week but was later released without charge after the incident.
McGregor hit back at a Twitter user’s remark that England ‘can have him’ in response to an article, which described the proud Irishman as ‘English’.
The user’s bio describes her as a ‘Certified Suicide Intervention Specialist’, something which McGregor picked up on.
“Suicide intervention yet ridiculing me in this manner online, at this horrendous time in my life,” he tweeted.
“I am trying to stay strong for my kids and the people that rely on me and that love and support me. Thanks for the insults, hypocrite.”
He later wrote: “I can’t go on like this man. I am crushed here.”
The tweets were later deleted.
The MMA legend could be re-arrested after the results of further tests are made available.
“Key physical tests were carried out on the suspect, but the results will not be known until after the weekend,” an investigating source told the Daily Mail.
“These tests are of a routine nature following incidents like this, but they take time, to make sure there is no doubt about them.
“It is also possible that the incident being complained about was filmed. It took place in a very busy place, where fixed cameras are situated everywhere.
“Lots of holidaymakers would also have been filming and taking pictures on their phones, so they also need to be spoken to.”
