Boxer Tyson Fury has sparked further outrage after making homophobic, sexist and anti-Semitic comments in an hour-long video rant.

Fury has previously been accused of sexism and homophobia, including controversial remarks about Olympic heptathlon champion Jessica Ennis-Hill.

In his latest outburst, he claimed "Zionist, Jewish people ... own all the banks, all the papers, all the TV stations".

He made personal attacks against Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko in the run-up to their rematch fight in July.

Fury also voiced his extreme views on bestiality, paedophilia and women during the 57-minute clip.

The Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA) is calling for the heavyweight champion to be barred from the sport after his latest "offensive and racist" remarks.

Spokesman Jonathan Sacerdoti said: "There should be no place for anti-Semitism in sport.

"He should be barred from boxing and referred to the British Boxing Board of Control.

"This is not his first offence, he specialises in outrageous offensive and racist slurs.

"Behaviour like this should prompt his sponsors to withdraw their backing.

"Britain does not tolerate or support racism. These specific anti-Semitic slurs are centuries old, and his use of them today in 2016 shows ignorance and malice."

The group has made a complaint to the British Boxing Board of Control.

The footage, which was posted on YouTube by SportsViewLondon, has been viewed more than 10,000 times.
