Winterizing my fig tree

Hi, My fig tree has almost shed all its leaves for the winter period. Before pruning back do I remove the existing fruits or leave them on the tree and cover the whole thing up? Please advise.

Experts recommend removing the fruits, prune lightly to thin and shape and clean deadwood and crossing branches, then cover.
