Bruno tried drugs and alcohol aged eight

The sportsman, who has previously been open about his battle with cocaine after retiring from the ring, admits he was a “problem” child and was given his first taste of illegal substances when he was a young boy.

Bruno, who grew up in London, claims to have gotten drunk and smoked marijuana before he was sent to a special school for troubled children where he learned to box.

He tells Piers Morgan’s Life Stories, “I got drunk at eight and I had my first puff of, I think it was Moroccan (marijuana), at aged eight… I was a bit of a bad boy.”
