Fury shared a video on Instagram of him carrying the wooden cross on Good Friday - the day that Christians believe Jesus died after being crucified on a cross.

The WBC heavyweight boxing world champion has previously thanked Jesus and God for helping him achieve greatness in the sport.

Fury is currently in training for a clash with fellow Brit Anthony Joshua after the two champions agreed a two-fight deal.
