Australian cricket star Nathan Lyon has been pictured kissing a glamorous blonde real estate agent.
The father-of-two flew to Perth, Western Australia, on Sunday ahead of Thursday's crucial third Ashes Test at the WACA so he could spend more time with the woman, Emma McCarthy.
Daily Mail Australia can exclusively reveal the pair were snapped kissing in Miss McCarthy's luxury $120,000 BMW before enjoying dinner with her parents and then spending the night together at her Mount Pleasant home.
Lyon's pre-match catch up comes just weeks after his long-term partner Melissa Waring was spotted supporting him at The Gabba Test in Brisbane with their two young children. Miss Waring, who has been with the spinner for 10 years, regularly posts happy family photos to her Instagram page.
On Wednesday, Miss Maring posted an image to her Instagram account showing the family-of-four together, captioning it: 'Can't believe it's this time of the year again! #Christmas #family.'

Other Instagram posts – including a photo showing Miss Maring posing with a group of other WAGs or 'Girls on Tour' as they prefer to be called – affectionately refer to Lyon as 'daddy', 'our man' and 'our world'.
On Sunday, Miss McCarthy was spotted driving to Lyon's hotel, Perth's Crown Metropol, picking him up in her BMW 420i sports coupé and heading to her upmarket four-bedroom home in Mount Pleasant.
The pair stayed indoors for hours, before Miss McCarthy drove him back to the hotel.

On Monday, Miss McCarthy drove Nathan back to his hotel and the couple were spotted enjoying another kissing session in her car before he headed back to his room and she went off to work.
An onlooker said: 'Nathan was obviously excited to see her when he first got to Perth. He was smiling as they drove away from the hotel.
'Later when he saw her again they starting kissing immediately. It was like young love, even when they stopped at red lights they had another kiss.

It's understood Lyon and Miss McCarthy have been in a loving and committed relationship for over a year.
They are believed to have met at a time when Lyon 'considered himself a single man'.
But Miss Waring's public displays of support and loving posts on social media send mixed messages about the state of their apparent separation as a romantic couple.

The news is likely to encourage sledging from the England team during the latest Ashes match
The onlooker who watched Lyon and Miss McCarthy interact said 'Nathan was trying to be discreet about being picked up and dropped off but it was impossible for them not to be seen'.
The news is likely to encourage sledging from the England team during the latest Ashes match, which British fans no doubt hope will damage Australia and help them fight back from a two-Test deficit.
The English team have been rocked by scandals – wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow headbutted Australia's Cameron Bancroft inside a Perth bar in October, while batsman Ben Duckett was suspended for pouring a drink over bowler James Anderson.
The embarrassment continued on Thursday morning, the opening day of the Third Ashes, when two Indian men reportedly claimed they were able to fix the Test.
One of the men – known as the Indian Mr Big – claimed to know which overs to bet on and how many runs would be scored, prompting an investigation into the allegations to be launched by the world's governing cricket body.

Lyon is widely considered to be one of the best bowlers in the world, a fiercely competitive athlete who holds the record for the most Test wickets taken by an Australian off-spin bowler.
His nickname amongst teammates of 'GOAT' – which stands for the 'Greatest Of All Time' – speaks volumes about the respect he demands from players in the dressing room.
Lyon was instrumental in powering Australia to its two Ashes victories so far, taking 11 wickets and sledging England's heroes with his boast 'Could we end some careers? I hope so'.
