VIDEO: Fury on Sports Personality criticism

Planet heavyweight champion Tyson Fury responds to developing criticism against his inclusion on the BBC Sports Character of the Year’s shortlist by quoting from the Bible.

Fury says “believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved” and ends the interview by blowing a kiss to the camera.

Meanwhile, fellow Sports Personality nominee Greg Rutherford says he will attend the show in Belfast on 20 December right after initially pulling out simply because of Fury’s inclusion on the shortlist.

The lengthy jump planet champion criticised Fury’s “quite outdated and derogatory comments” views on women, homosexuality and abortion.
