Golfer Phil Mickelson said Saturday that he had not broken the law and has cooperated with federal investigators looking into insider trading allegations involving billionaire investor Carl Icahn.

"I have done absolutely nothing wrong," the Masters champion said in a statement. "I have cooperated with the government in this investigation and will continue to do so. I wish I could fully discuss this matter, but under the current circumstances it's just not possible."
