Morecambe TT legend John McGuinness does Tyson Fury impression on BBC Question of Sport

In a preview clip posted online, the 23-time TT Isle of Man motorcycle road race winner is seen mimicking the world heavyweight boxing champion’s racing style in a lightweight fashion.

“But I don’t know what he does, he doesn’t really run much.”

John then gave a quick impression of the 6ft 9in WBC heavyweight champion’s run, as host Paddy McGuinness said: “I wouldn’t really insult Tyson Fury on TV! Especially if he lives near you.”

McGuinness joked, “I’ll be on the bike, I’ll be gone, don’t worry about it!”

Tweeting a clip from tonight’s show, the Isle of Man TT Races Twitter page @ttracesofficial asked: “The question is who’s your money on in the Morecambe, McGuinness or Tyson Fury game? “

John responded on his own Twitter @jm130tt.

“Oh my God!! Looks like I have a big lip!!!”

‘The Morecambe Missile’ will appear on the long-running sports quiz TV show alongside team captains Olympic gold medal-winning hockey player Sam Quek and former England rugby union star Ugo Monye, and other panelists from English cricketer great Andrew “Freddie” Flintoff, boxing star Joshua Buatsi and world canoe whitewater champion Hannah Brown.
