Tyson Fury has hit the headlines again this week after posting a controversial video to Twitter captioned 'The everyday racist behaviour in 2016'. 

The video appears to be a compilation of insults and abuse directed at Fury on social media attacking the boxer over his background and lifestyle.

The Heavyweight Champion, who self-proclaims himself as the 'Gypsy King' posted the tweet, which can be found further down this article, on Tuesday evening, and it has not gone down well with most on the social network.

Many of the replies have called the video 'embarrassing' and fans are becoming increasingly worried about the state of the boxer.

Earlier this week, Fury revealed that he's on the brink of a breakdown, and the Mirror has reported that the champion admitted to taking cocaine, saying: "I've done a lot of things in my life. I've done lots of cocaine. Lots of it. Why shouldn't I take cocaine?" 

Fury hasn't fought since he beat Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 when he won the World Heavyweight title showdown.

Since then, he's been stripped of the IBF title after refusing to give the Ukrainian a rematch, and pulled out of the fight in September after being declared 'medically unfit'.

Fury also told the magazine Rolling Stone this week that he is in no fit state to fight, saying: "To be honest, I've not been in the gym for months. I've been AWOL.

"I've been out drinking, anything to get my mind off what's been going on to me. I'm as fat as pig. I'm 285 pounds, 290 pounds. It is what it is. I've been out."

It remains to be seen if Fury will ever step back into the ring again, and it's looking increasingly unlikely that he will fight early in 2017, which many fans were hoping for.
