He has taken on cyborgs, Martians and Danny DeVito, but Arnold Schwarzenegger has officially "survived Maria".

The former governor of California made light of his pending divorce to wife with Maria Shriver by wearing a T-shirt bearing the slogan "It's Time" on the front and "I Survived Maria" on the back, with the date 2007 -2010 printed under it, with the first year cross out and replaced with 1977, the year the couple started dating at the turn of the year.

The Terminator actor, who was pictured during a workout in Santa Monica, reportedly received the T-shirt as a farewell present when stepping down as governor.

Mr Schwarzenegger and Miss Shriver separated after 25 years of marriage following revelations that he fathered a secret love child with long-time household maid Mildred Baena and kept it secret for more than a decade.

The 63-year-old is due to make his return to acting in a modern Western The Last Stand, in which he will play a sheriff defending his town from a drug cartel boss.
