Maltese Cross Features In Netflix Series 'At Home With The Furys'

The recently released ‘At Home With The Furys’, which details heavyweight champion Tyson Fury’s retirement from boxing, featured a familiar cameo for us Maltese.

During episode 7, which has Tyson Fury and his wife on vacation in Cannes France, the Maltese cross features for a brief moment as a flag flows in the air on the boat they are on. 

The flag appears behind the couple as they enjoy some food and drink together. 

Meanwhile, the series itself was massively praised by critics for its depiction on mental health, as it showed the boxer’s day to day struggles. 

This is due to Fury being diagnosed with bipolar back in 2017, with the athlete struggling with depression, anxiety and substance abuse with alcohol and cocaine. 

The nine-episode reality series, released earlier this week, follows the heavyweight world champion as he retires from boxing and embraces family life.
