Tyson Fury was not required to attend London hearing, UK Anti-Doping have confirmed

Tyson Fury is not required to attend his much-delayed UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) hearing in London, although the governing body has declined to state whether the case is being heard on Tuesday.
Fury was not present when the inquiry resumed on Monday, and on Tuesday, the 29-year-old former heavyweight champion published on social media a video of him in his car heading to training in Manchester.
UKAD confirmed a tweet by promoters Hennessy Sport stating that he does not need to attend, but in a confusing twist would not confirm whether the hearing is continuing.
Fury and his cousin Hughie, 23, tested positive for the banned steroid nandrolone in February 2015.
The pair, however, were not charged by UKAD until June 2016, by which time Tyson Fury had beaten Wladimir Klitschko.
A rematch with the Ukrainian was scheduled for July 2016 but Fury postponed the fight, citing a sprained ankle, on the same day the UKAD charge was announced.
Both Hughie and Tyson Fury have strongly denied the nandrolone charge, claiming the positive was a result of eating wild boar.
