Former boxing champion Tyson Fury has celebrated the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee by going for a jog in a Union Jack flag.

Fury posted a video to Instagram stories of him running down a rainy Morecambe Bay months after announcing his retirement from boxing.

The 33-year-old’s last professional fight came in April, when he knocked out fellow Brit Dillian White at Wembley Stadium.

During the video posted earlier today, which included friend Bob Howard, Fury said: "P*****g down in Morecambe Bay, get up Bobby Howard, what's the weather like Bob?".

Mr Howard replied by saying: "British" before Fury added: "Come on, soaking wet, come on."

While in a separate post on Instagram, Fury urged his fans suffering with mental health issues over the bank holiday weekend to speak with a friend or family member or seek medical advice.

He said: "Just sat here and I thought I do a little video for all of the people suffering with depression anxiety or any mental health disorder you may have,"

"Now is the time to seek help, get medical advice or speak to a friend or family member, whoever you can.

"If you don't have any friends or family members that you think you can speak to like I didn't, seek medical advice immediately.

"Now is the time, you sooner you can go and do it the better. The sooner you can return to health again, it's a sad and lonely place to be especially over the holidays.

"I just thought of all the people who may be struggling or in need, this one's for you. All the people who are out there on and off with it all, do yourself a bit of exercising.

"Put the drink down, drugs down, everything down. Get your runners on, get your gym gear, do a bit if you can. Any exercise is better than none."
