Over in the US, the WBC world heavyweight champion, Deontay Wilder, appears to be in a bit of bother.

Wilder, unbeaten as a heavyweight, has been arrested for possession of marijuana.

The arrest took place, in Alabama, after his car was pulled over for, of all things, a window tint violation.

Approaching the vehicle, after it had stopped, the officers smelled the distinct odour of marijuana coming from inside the car.

A subsequent search uncovered a small bag containing the drug.

Wilder was, subsequently arrested and taken to the station.

However, after paying a bond of £785, Wilder was released.

Following the incident Wilder was, like they all say in such circumstances, adamant that the drug didn?t belong to him.

All we?ll say is that it is an unsavoury incident and not the best of examples to be set by somebody who occupies one of the most prestigious mantles in sport.
