World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury was not about to let coronavirus warnings KO his St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, defying government advice and heading down his local pub for a pint of Guinness.
British PM Boris Johnson declared at the start of the week that the population should steer clear of pubs and other public venues amid the Covid-19 pandemic which has infected 200,000 people worldwide and claimed upwards of 7,500 lives.
That meant eerily empty streets and deserted pubs in many places in the UK on Tuesday, but Fury was not about to let the warnings spoil his St. Patrick’s Day revelry in the seaside town of Morecambe.
The WBC champ shared a picture with his 3.6 million Instagram followers of himself at his local boozer with pint in hand, standing next to a near life-sized cardboard cutout and joined by cousin and fellow pugilist Isaac Lowe.
