Tyson Fury says a prayer for a child with cancer in a comforting hug


We often see the more abrasive version of Tyson Fury, especially in the build-up to fights, but “The Gypsy King” also has a soft side.

Yesterday Fury was filmed hugging seven-year-old cancer patient River Rhodes and saying a prayer asking for the child to be healed.

Rhodes responded on Twitter, posting the video and saying, “Thank you for the prayer champ.”

Since being diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in his eye in October 2021, Rhodes has undergone intense chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

Although it can be difficult to seek out silver linings in these dire situations, Rhodes, who is a huge fan of Wolves and football in general, has recently managed to meet a number of his sporting idols.

He met the likes of Mason Mount, Wayne Rooney, Adama Traore, Harry Maguire and even Cristiano Ronaldo, who posted about his encounter with Rhodes on social media.

Ronaldo shared a photo of the pair bumping fists with the caption: “Children are and always will be the best thing the world has to offer, and we must protect them at all costs.

“The fans are and always will be the best in football, and we must respect everything they face and endure for their clubs.”

Fury is used to helping those in need

It’s not the first time we’ve seen Tyson Fury’s more charitable side, as after knocking out Dillian Whyte in front of 90,000 fans at Wembley Stadium, he invited young Tottenham fan Marshall Janson to the ring.

Marshall, who is 14, lost his arms and legs after suffering from meningitis when he was one year old.

Fury then offered to help raise money to pay for Janson’s prosthetics.
