1. Tiger Woods
After a traffic accident, it emerged that Woods had engaged in affairs with dozens of women. This rocked the world of sport because the legendary golfer had such a clean-cut image. While history has been kind to Woods, at the time, it was a major scandal and he had to apologize.
Woods spoke to a press conference of about 40 people, including his mother. His famous opening words were: “I was unfaithful, I had affairs, I cheated. For all that I have done, I am so sorry.” However, the damage to his marriage was irreparable. Meanwhile, he also spent time in rehab.
