Roxy Jacenko says Candice Warner is doing okay

Roxy Jacenko revealed to Yahoo7 Be on Friday, that her client, Candice Warner, is ‘doing as well as can be expected’.

The former ironwoman returned home from South Africa on Thursday, with husband David and their two children, following Cricket Australia’s ball-tampering scandal.

The sportsman has been suspended for a year, after it was reported he ordered Cameron Bancroft to tamper with a ball using sandpaper, during the Third Test game.

‘Candice is doing as well as can be expected given the situation,’ Roxy, who is the mother-of-two’s publicist at Ministry Of Talent, told Yahoo7 Be on Friday.

The media maven has been vocal about her support for Candice, having told Daily Mail Australia a day prior, that she’s ‘a wonderful mother, wife and friend’. 

‘She will continue, as will the family, to be supported 150 per cent by myself personally and my agencies, Sweaty Betty PR and The Ministry of Talent, who represent Candice,’ Roxy said.

‘All of our clients will rally around her and feel the same way,’ she added.  

On Wednesday, Australian cricket vice-captain David Warner was slapped with a 12- month ban alongside captain Steve Smith, for their role in the ball-tampering scandal during the third Test against South Africa. 

David and Steve reportedly ordered player Cameron Bancroft, who landed a nine-month ban, to tamper with a ball using sandpaper during the game.

The incident took place during the afternoon session on Saturday and was picked up by TV cameras.    

Cameron was seen using a small piece of tape covered with dirt to tamper the ball.  

He was later captured taking it from his pocket and placing it down his trousers, a few moments after being spoken to by the substitute Peter Handscomb, who had come onto the field after speaking to coach Darren Lehmann via walkie-talkie.
