Boxing champ Tyson Fury has suggested he may have converted to Islam with a series of Twitter updates.

The controversial star has been active on his social media account today - earlier he offered to be Donald Trump's new 'minder'.

He also posted an image of him meeting politician John Rees Evans who is vying to be the next leader of UKIP.

Now Fury has changed his profile picture to an image of him wearing traditional Muslim dress.

He has also changed his name to Riaz Tyson Muhammad and his bio reads: "UNITING ALL RELIGIONS,1 WORLD BLESSED BY JESUS"

It led to suggestions he may have followed in the footsteps of legendary boxer Cassius Clay who converted to Islam and became Muhammad Ali in 1964.

Fury retweeted a follower who wrote: "Cassius Clay became Muhammad Ali, 50 years on Tyson Fury became Riaz Muhammad"

Fury, a born-again Christian, has spoken of his religious beliefs frequently in the past.

In an interview last year, he said: "I’m a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ.

"I’ll say it no matter how many people it offends. I’ll say it."

Earlier, Fury revealed how Donald Trump has inspired him and that his success could lead to his own candidacy for Prime Minister.

"The great country of American has had a massive change in Donald Trump. It's time for the UK to do the same # powertothepeople," Tweeted the 28-year-old.

"Who knows? # TysonforPrimeMinister coming soon, if Donald Trump can do it, so can I #beliefandfaith # neversaydie.

"If Donald Trump wants a new minder, look no further, as Tyson Fury is your man."
