Mike Tyson fell asleep on a double date with Madonna.

The retired boxer recalled he took a trip to the cinema to see 'Big Top Pee-wee' in the 1980s with his first wife, actress Robin Givens, as well as Madonna and her then-husband Sean Penn, but admitted he can't remember much of it because both him and Sean dozed off during the movie.

He said: "We saw Pee Wee Herman's 'Big Top' ... We were with both of our significant others at the time, of course.

"[It was] in the 80s. She was married to Sean, I was married as well. Me and Sean fell asleep in the movie."

The 48-year-old sportsman went on to explain that despite having great company during the low-key rendezvous, it was alcohol which caused them to take a snooze.

He admitted: "We like Pee-wee but we were slightly inebriated."

Meanwhile, Mike - who features on the track 'Iconic' on Madonna's 13th solo studio album 'Rebel Heart' - joked he still has no idea whether the 'Living For Love' hitmaker also fell asleep because he was too tired to notice.

Speaking on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live', he said: "I have no idea. I slept most of it."
