‘He was almost losing emotional control, his voice started breaking when he spoke about his family and the effect it has had on them, but it also happened again when he started speaking about his future, long-term career,’ he said. 

Interestingly, Mr Kelly said Warner seemed most worried about himself and his future in cricket, saying it was obvious that Warner’s ‘greatest interest’ was his ‘self interest’. 

Mr Kelly also said it was clear that Warner had been coached in how to ‘stonewall’ the inevitable hard questions he was going to face. 

‘He was coached to not go there, to say this statement if you don’t want to answer it. But people will be disappointed that he didn’t talk much about the other players,’ he said.

Mr Kelly said Warner’s ‘hard face’ and ‘pained eyes’ also indicated real and deep remorse.

Meanwhile social media erupted during and after the press conference with many people saying they weren’t buying what Warner was selling.

‘Smithy jumped on a grenade while Warner purposely chose to avoid answers in order to implicate others and relieve ‘his part’ in it all. I sniff a paid tell all,’ one Twitter user wrote.

Many others said they felt Warner’s emotions were fabricated for the sake of PR.

Another point of contention for many viewers was the way Warner seemed to avoid a number of questions, leaving them unanswered for now. 

Warner went on to tweet a response to those who felt he was being cagey in the press conference.

‘I am taking advice to make sure I properly comply with that process and answer all questions in the proper place and at the proper time,’ he wrote.

‘Sorry to be harsh but does anyone think these tears from David Warner are crocodile tears after Steve Smith’s tears from his press conference?? … I’m just not buying it,’ tweeted one skeptical viewer. 

While others were quick to jump to the defence of Warner and his wife Çandice Warner.

‘Can’t even imagine how hard life is for you right now,’ wrote one user. 

‘So sad to see the ugly side of humanity by the comments you are receiving.’
