The UK Armed Forces team quickly removed their social media post about the visit after Paul Madden, the British ambassador, had words.

'It was very, very naive,' a team organiser said. 'We've been told not to visit any more shrines, just in case.
Deontay Wilder says the cuts sustained by Tyson Fury during his win over Otto Wallin were two of the worst he's ever seen and vowed to do him more damage in their rematch.

Fury suffered a cut in the third round of Saturday's contest in Las Vegas, which opened up a wound on his eyelid, before picking up a second cut on his eyebrow later on in the bout.

The 31-year-old was fortunate the fight wasn't stopped by the ringside doctor as blood poured from his wounds throughout the 12 rounds, as he held on to secure a convincing points win.

Since the fight, Fury has required scores of stitches to close both cuts and could need plastic surgery to ensure a full recovery, leading to fears his proposed rematch with Wilder in February could be delayed.

Wilder watched Fury's fight and offered no sympathy to his rival, instead promising to cause him significant damage and reopen his wounds when the pair meet again.

'He's very vulnerable. When he gets hit on the chin, it's a wrap,' he told Thaboxingvoice.

'Otto Wallin was doing a great job up to that point, especially when he cut him over the eye. I was telling, I thought he was going to get a stoppage. It looked like it was three inches wide and two inches deep.

'That's the worst cut besides the Klitschko and Lennox fight. That was the worst cut I've seen in my life.'

Fury and Wilder's first fight in December 2018 ended in a draw at the end of a thrilling contest which saw the 'Bronze Bomber' knock the 'Gypsy King' down twice.

Fury showed incredible fortitude to rise from the canvas on both occasions, particularly in the 12th round when it appeared he had been knocked out before rising to his feet and dominating the rest of the stanza.

A rematch between the pair has at last been scheduled for February 22nd and Wilder says even the best surgeons in the world won't be able to stop him from causing the heavyweight more damage.

 'I can't wait. I hope they heal well, and I can't wait to see Mr Fury.

'That's not my problem if he's ready or not. He signed the contract. That's his problem. He better get ready.

'No matter what he does, when he fights me, it's [the cut] is going to open right back up.

'I'm going to pop it right back open. He can get plastic surgery, duck tape or staples, Super Glu or Hot Glu, Cement Glu. S***, he can go get some of that Flex Glu. It ain't even going to matter.'

Rio Ferdinand fears that Eden Hazard has joined Real Madrid with the club on the decline.

Real were thumped 3-0 in a desperately poor showing against PSG on Wednesday night in their Champions League opener.

Zinedine Zidane's side looked a shadow of their former selves and Hazard, who joined from Chelsea for £130million, was largely anonymous.

Two goals from Angel Di Maria against his old side, followed by a late Thomas Meunier effort, consigned Real to an abject defeat.

There are serious question marks about the work ethic of the squad and their former aura is wearing thin.

In the BT Sport studio, Rio Ferdinand had his say and is fearful that Hazard's move to the Spanish giants has been timed poorly.

He said: 'When you go to a new club, especially the size of Real Madrid, you have to earn the right to be the man who gets all the ball.

'He's got to do something in the training games, in the actual games that he plays.

'I'm fearful for him that he's gone there at the wrong time.

'This is a team that's ageing, they're not on their way up, they've not got much spark about them at the moment. That is going to affect him and reflect badly on him in the long term.'

And Peter Crouch agreed that Hazard himself must do more to command the ball rather than simply expect it.  

'Hazard at Chelsea was one of the top five players in the world but watching him tonight he didn't look it. At Chelsea he was the main man and everyone was giving him the ball from everywhere. He won't get that at Madrid until he earns it.'
