Tyson Fury Stopped Stranger From Taking His Own Life By Going On Three-Mile Run With Him

Tyson Fury Stopped Stranger From Taking His Own Life By Going On Three-Mile Run With Him

Former world heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury has taken to social media to share a story about how he saved a man from taking his own life by taking him on a run.

According to the video, posted on Instagram stories, the 'Gypsy King' said that someone who was on the verge of ending their life had turned up to his house wanting to speak to him.

In the video, which was posted on Monday (2 December), Fury tells the camera of how the 'random stranger' explained that he was about to take his own life, but needed to speak to the boxer beforehand.

He continued: "So obviously, me being me, I talked me out of it and took him on a three-mile run. He left as happy as Larry and it seems to have worked.

"To all those people out there suffering from mental health problems, please do not take your own life.

"It will get better, I promise you. There is help around the corner, please seek medical advice immediately and you will return to what you once were.

The identity of the other man is not known, but hats off to Tyson for helping someone who was clearly in need.

Fury has been very open about his own mental health problems, having previously revealed that he once came close to driving his Ferrari off the road while he was battling depression and drug addiction. Taking some time off in 2016 and 2017, he became an advocate of 'smashing the stigma', which might explain why some look up to him as a role model.

He also shared another message on his Instagram, from someone called 'James', who explained that a few weeks earlier he had tried to kill himself in the back of his work van while struggling with debt problems.

However, after hearing Tyson talking on TalkSport, he 'came to his senses'.

Fury added: "Thanks James, I am so humbled reading this message, God bless, and I will continue the work on smashing the stigma."
