Video: heavyweight champion Tyson Fury tells British public 'listen to Boris, stay indoors'

WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has called on the British public to 'listen to Boris and stay indoors' in a video message from his home.

Fury, who is now back home in Morecambe after beating Deontay Wilder in their rematch in Las Vegas to become a two-time heavyweight champion of the world, implored people to listen to what the Government is telling them to do.

In a video message on social media, he said: "I would just like to say that I hope everybody is keeping well and staying safe and staying indoors and not going out because of the virus.

“After listening to what the prime minister said, I've taken it deadly seriously, as should you. Let's fight this virus together as a nation, as a family and as a team, and do the best to help others not get the virus. Stay indoors, it's very, very important, listen to Boris and stay indoors.

"I'm going to keep fit and post daily videos of myself training and working out to keep you going, to keep me going. Everybody knows without the gym I'm finished.

"God bless, stay safe, stay indoors."
