Mike Tyson's Prince tribute has to be the strangest yet

The entire world has been paying tribute to Prince since the music legend unexpectedly passed away yesterday, but Mike Tyson's contribution is a little different.

The former boxer posted a bizarre image of himself and the pop icon blended together underneath the word 'Printhe', surely a tongue-in-cheek nod to Iron Mike's famous lisp.

We're not sure what His Purpleness would make of the image but the two men have a bit of history.

According to Tyson's memoir, Mike once called over to Eddie Murphy's house to find the comedian and his brother losing a game of basketball to a team led by Prince, who just happened to be playing in high heel shoes.

So bizarre, it just has to be true, right?
