Tyson Fury has revealed how he has suffered from racist abuse over his traveller background - and he doesn't think that will ever change.

Fury completed a remarkable turnaround this year after fighting back from depression and addiction issues to become heavyweight world champion for a second time.

Next year it is anticipated he will fight fellow Brit Anthony Joshua, with the winner set to unify the heavyweight belts and be crowned the undisputed world champion. However, the 31-year-old - nicknamed 'The Gypsy King' - has revealed that yobs still call him "pikey" when they see him out and about.

“I’ve suffered from racial abuse my whole life, even now I still get called a pikey t**t when I drive down the road," Fury said in an interview with the Daily Star.

“I can be jogging down the road and people shout out of their car window, ‘You bloody pikey!’ And then they just drive on. I suffer with it all the time, always have done, always will do.
