Former boxing champion Mike Tyson allegedly became embroiled in a clash at a London airport last month when a staff member reportedly stepped on his wife's toes and tried to take pictures of the couple.

Tyson was travelling from Barcelona in Spain to Los Angeles with his wife Lakiha Spicer when they interchanged at the U.K's Heathrow airport.

Tyson was left fuming when an airport employee tried to photograph the couple as they stood in an elevator and the boxer allegedly lunged at the worker, reports Britain's The Sun.

According to the publication, Tyson's minders removed the unnamed man from the elevator to avoid the argument escalating.

"The man was a bit dim," a source told the paper. "Tyson went berserk."
