Andrew Tate, the former combat sports artist and controversial social media personality, was recently spotted sparring with his long-time coach Amir Subasic. He was released from jail last month, after being detained in Romania with his younger brother Tristan Tate, for charges of rape, human trafficking, money laundering and other offences in December last year.
The 36-year-old posted a training video on Twitter on May 4, in which he was hitting the pads with his former kickboxing instructor Amir Subasic. On the next day, he shared another similar video, this time with a notable caption, in which he talked about being retired from professional sport for the last 5 years and missing the chance to fight in the ring as well.
