Tyson Fury has arrived at Manchester Airport after winning the WBC heavyweight title in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

Fury produced a stunning performance to stop the previously unbeaten American Deontay Wilder in the seventh round.

The 31-year-old Briton was greeted by hundreds of well-wishers in Manchester and was all smiles as he made his way through the airport.

The self-titled 'Gypsy King' didn't answer any questions on his return to the North West but was seen shaking the hands of people who had come to greet him.

A previous fight between Fury and Wilder in 2018 had ended in a draw.

It is the second time Fury has been crowned World Champion, after beating Wladimir Klitschko four years ago.

His journey back to the top, after struggles with his Mental Health, has been detailed in an ITV documentary, 'Tyson Fury: The Gypsy King'.

His father, John Fury, told ITV that he wants Tyson to consider retiring, now that he is World Champion again.

There is now speculation over whether Fury will fight fellow Brit and World Champion Anthony Joshua, or if there will be another rematch against Wilder.
