    The club added that a further announcement regarding an extension to the partnership will be made ‘at a later date’.

    The now retired WBC heavyweight champion was born in Manchester but has been based in Morecambe for much of his boxing career.

    He has his training base in the town and regularly posts videos of himself running along the seafront.

    Fury said: “Big announcement – the Gypsy King has just sponsored my local club, Morecambe Football Club.

    “Let’s have a fantastic season and smash it. Come on the boys! And the girls!”

    Morecambe’s head of commercial Martin Thomas said: “Tyson is a fantastic ambassador for the Morecambe area and it’s fantastic to have him on board.

    “Tyson is one of the most recognisable names in the world of sport, and will bring worldwide recognition to the club.”

    Fury beat Dillian Whyte in April to retain the WBC title. He announced afterwards he was retiring but has been persistently linked with a return to the ring.

    On Wednesday, he claimed he would fight Antony Joshua for free as long as the clash would be shown on free-to-air TV and all tickets cost nothing.

    However, he has previously said that it would take around £500million to get him out of retirement.
