Fury sorry for online video comments

BBC News

World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has apologised for statements he made in a video posted online. Fury, 27, was filmed making homophobic, sexist and anti-Semitic comments in a video posted online earlier this month. In November, Fury caused an upset by outpointing 40-year-old Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko in Germany, with the rematch for his WBA and WBO heavyweight titles to take place at the Manchester Arena on 9 July. His previous comments on homosexuality, paedophilia and women saw more than 100,000 people sign an online petition in an attempt to get him removed from the BBC's 2015 Sports Personality of the Year shortlist.
