Tyson Fury responds to Sports Personality of the Year criticism

World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury responds to building criticism against his inclusion on the BBC Sports Personality of the Year's shortlist by quoting from the Bible.

Fury says "believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved" and ends the interview by blowing a kiss to the camera.

Meanwhile, fellow Sports Personality nominee Greg Rutherford says he will attend the show in Belfast on 20 December after initially pulling out because of Fury's inclusion on the shortlist.

The long jump world champion criticised Fury's "very outdated and derogatory comments" views on women, homosexuality and abortion.
