Watch Tyson Fury celebrate Platinum Jubilee with message to fans before run down Morecambe Bay draped in a Union Jack

TYSON FURY has been pictured running draped in a Union Jack to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

While many people may have travelled down to London to celebrate the Jubilee, British heavyweight boxer Fury broke the trend by going for a run along the Morecambe Bay beachfront in wet conditions.

WBC champ Fury announced his retirement from boxing after stopping Dillian Whyte in the sixth round in April.

Since then he has continued to post motivational messages on his social media channels, becoming a champion for mental health issues.

Fury took to his Instagram on Thursday to record a message for his followers ahead of the long weekend.

"I just thought of all the people who may be struggling or in need, this one's for you. All the people who are out there on and off with it all, do yourself a bit of exercising.

"Put the drink down, drugs down, everything down. Get your runners on, get your gym gear, do a bit if you can. Any exercise is better than none."
