Former heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko was rescued by Spanish coastguard after the luxury yacht he was onboard caught fire.

The 43-year-old, who retired from boxing in August 2017, was on holiday off the coast of Mallorca.

“Our trip Sunday night ended up in our boat igniting and family and friends being evacuated by coastguard and fire rescue team,” the Ukrainian, who won 64 of his 69 fights, wrote on Twitter.
