Shamed British boxing champion Ricky Hatton has left rehab following a month-long stint battling his drug problems.
The sports star hit headlines last month when photographs of him allegedly snorting cocaine in a hotel room were published by U.K. tabloid the News of the World.

The former WBA Welterweight Champion admitted he began “dabbling” with drugs following a series of “humiliating” defeats, which led to depression, and he checked into London’s The Priory clinic on 13 September.

Following an intensive treatment program, Hatton was released from the facility earlier this week, reports Britain’s Daily Mirror.

A source tells the publication, “It’s not been the best of times but he is out now and looking much better.”
