BOXER Tyson Fury has been spotted on holiday in Bournemouth.

The former heavyweight champion of the world turned heads at Greenbaize Snooker Club on Wallisdown Road where he happily posed for pictures with fans.

Paul Arnes, who was playing a snooker tournament, said: “It surprised me to see him but he was really nice.”

Fan Kieran Gillingham added: “I went down because I heard he was there. I waited outside because I didn’t want to disturb him but when he came out he was really happy. He was very nice about taking photos and wished us all the best.”

The 6ft 9ins Gypsy King, from Manchester, also paid a visit to Dorset professional boxer Iain Weaver’s gym to watch him train.

The former Commonwealth champion said he called in while on holiday in the area. He said: “I’ve known Tyson for a few years now, I was going into the GB squad just as he was leaving so it was nice to see him and catch up.”
