Heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua took to social media to reveal his new passion for golf, clearly unaware of the stigma surrounding iron head covers in a golf bag.
Joshua, who will defend his heavyweight titles against Kubrat Pulev behind closed doors on December 12, posted an image of him down the local practice range with the caption: "Where are my golfers at? I need some lesssssssssons famalam! My teks is shocking."

The popular YouTube creator and golf coach Rick Shiels was quick to offer Joshua a lesson when tweeting: "I'll help you out AJ," but not before the flurry of comments about his iron head covers took over the feed.

The Joshua-Pulev fight in December will likely be staged in front of no fans following the confirmation on Tuesday from Prime Minister Boris Johnson that large sporting events will remain closed to the public due to the rise in coronavirus cases.
