‘He’s certainly not a champion of the people now’: Fans slam boxer Tyson Fury for sharing videos on Instagram showing him on holiday with his wife as millions in England are at home in Tier 4 lockdown
- Tyson Fury, 32, yesterday filmed himself on hotel balcony with his wife Paris, 30
- The World Heavyweight Champion’s home town of Morecambe is under Tier 4
- Covid rules ban international travel for Brits, unless it is work or family reasons
- Fans believe the so-called Gypsy King is staying at a £230 a night hotel in Miami
Boxing fans have slammed Tyson Fury for sharing videos on Instagram showing him on holiday with his wife as millions in England are living under Tier 4 lockdown.
The World Heavyweight Champion, 32, yesterday shared footage of him eating breakfast on a hotel balcony together with his wife, Paris, 30.
Earlier this morning he shared a poolside picture believed to be at the £230 a night Fontainebleau Miami Beach Hotel.
On December 31 the self-appointed Gypsy King’s home town of Morecambe was plunged into Tier 4 lockdown measures.
Fans responded angrily yesterday, as one wrote: ‘He’s certainly not a champion of the people.’
Government guidance on travelling from Tier 4 areas reads: ‘You can only travel internationally where you first have a legally permitted reason to leave home.
World Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury shared footage of him enjoying breakfast and sunshine from a balcony on Saturday – despite his hometown of Morecambe being plunged into Tier 4 lockdown on New Year’s Eve
‘In addition, you should consider the public health advice in the country you are visiting.’
Exemptions are in place for work or emergency family matters – such as funerals.
It’s not clear when Fury flew out to the US, a week ago he shared an image alongside Paris with them both wearing matching Versace, but it was not clear where that picture was taken.
Posting to his Instagram on Saturday, Fury wrote: ‘Levels to this s***. @parisfury1 #1 #liveyourlife.’
Fans of the boxing champion said they were disappointed by his actions – even if he had travelled before Morecambe entered Tier 4.

Bradley_seymour_harmes said: ‘Tries to be a role model for mental health…. breaks the travel ban to party in Miami…. what about all of these lovely young lads stuck at home by themselves.
‘I had xmas indoors and saw no one. Fury is certainly not a champion of the people when he rubs it in our faces. Poor poor form.’
Krisymoo78 said: ‘I am an absolute @gypsyking101 super fan, you are the people’s champion….but just think about the people who support you who can even leave their house at the moment.
‘Your(sic) normally Mr humble all this says is look what I can do…..bad times.’
Sharon.morris.79said: ‘Covid rules don’t apply then ?’ while kishan_dosa95 asked: ‘How are you still able to fly out when we are in Tier 4?’
Fury was born in Wythenshawe in South Manchester and now lives with his wife and children in the Lancashire seaside town of Morecambe.
Tyson was joined by his wife Paris in the footage from Saturday evening. He has since shared another video of the couple, along with a poolside picture

Paris recently admitted the family was planning to move house because of the constant stream of people turning up on their doorstep.
She told Loose Women: ‘We get people around the house. It’s not good, we actually have to because of that.
‘We’re in the process of moving house because we’ve had too many people at the door – too many strangers knocking.
‘And we have five children here, it’s not like me and Tyson’s here, two adults who can sort of deal with situations.
‘We have people coming to the house and the kids are opening the door and we don’t know who they’re opening the door to. It’s not what we need. It’s not the ideal situation.’

A total of 381 have died in Morecambe Bay hospitals after contracting coronavirus.
