It’s the compliment no one ever wanted; to be told you’re good at your job by convicted rapist Mike Tyson.

The former boxing champion has branded Rob Ford - who has admitted to smoking crack cocaine - "the best mayor in Toronto’s history".

Tyson requested a meeting with Ford, who has been embroiled in a numerous incidents involving drink and drugs. In May, he entered rehab, after another video of him allegedly smoking crack cocaine was released.
