Tyson Fury has retired from boxing... and Twitter has responded by trolling him mercilessly

A man that many love to hate.

Tyson Fury has announced his retirement from boxing after he was stripped of his world heavyweight titles. He had tested positive for cocaine following the results of the urine sample.

Fury had initially responded by mocking the findings, changing his Twitter handle to TYSONMONTANA (an explicit reference to Tony Montana, the cocaine kingpin and addict from the movie Scarface). He also posted a picture of his own head photoshopped onto Al Pacino's body.

Fury followed it up today by tweeting his own retirement, saying "Boxing is the saddest thing I ever took part in, all a pile of shit, I'm the greatest, & I'm also retired, so go suck a dick, happy days."

Twitter users have responded pretty much exactly as you'd expect, trolling Fury half to death.

Safe to say he's unlikely to be missed too dearly.
