Former Yokozuna Wakanohana divorces wife

Former sumo wrestler Masaru Hanada, who went by the name of Wakanohana when he was an active wrestler, has divorced his wife Mieko, the talent agency he belongs to has announced.

The 36-year-old former yokozuna and his 38-year-old wife notified the local government on Tuesday that they broke up.

"We took a long time to discuss the matter before coming to this conclusion. We are happy that we met each other, were married for 13 years and have four children," a statement jointly issued by Hanada and Mieko partly reads.
