The Brit beat Robert Helenius earlier this month

Boxing star Anthony Joshua has caused controversy by posting a video of himself seemingly breaking the law.

The Brit is currently on a high after beating Robert Helenius earlier this month.

But Joshua appears to have now put himself in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons.

The 33-year-old shared footage showing him riding through the streets of London on an electric scooter, despite this being against the law.

Joshua sported a black tracksuit as he rode the vehicle.

The Brit seemed to be heading in the direction of Bethnal Green as he zoomed through the streets of London.

He was accompanied by one friend at first, with the 33-year-old then later seen riding on an electric bike with a larger group around him.

Under Transport for London regulations, it is illegal to ride an e-scooter on public roads or in public places.

This is only permitted if you are part of TFL's e-scooter rental trial.

"Rental electric scooters (e-scooters) are the only way to legally ride an e-scooter on public roads or in other public places within London - and even this is limited to specific boroughs," read the regulations.

"It is still illegal to use privately owned e-scooters or other powered transporters on public roads.'"

Joshua was spotted on an Inokim e-scooter, with their products ranging between £856 to £2,400.

Later on Monday, Joshua was snapped with influencer Franklin Boateng - who has been given the nickname 'King of Trainers'.

He later shared a post from Clean Herts Community to mark community day, too.

Joshua is now hoping to negotiate a fight with Deontay Wilder.

And when asked if he's looking to fit in another showdown before that battle, the Brit said: "No. The time frame doesn't really give an opportunity for that.

"The mind says fight in October but in reality we're trying to schedule a fight for December. I'm going to focus on the Wilder fight for now.

"From what I've heard, things are positive. We've got the stumbling block, Fury has to get past Ngannou and Usyk has to get past Dubois.

"Good luck to both of them, good luck to all parties involved and then we can sit down and rejig things around.

"The goal is to have Usyk and Fury potentially compete for the undisputed heavyweight championship.

"Myself and Deontay Wilder, two big punchers, great fighters, been to the top of the mountain, slug it out and may the best man win.

"It will be a great event, potentially. We're just waiting to see what happens and then finalise the devil in the detail."
