Boxer Joshua denies affair as Khan splits from his wife

By Staff Reporter

Unified world heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua has rubbished claims he is in a relationship with Amir Khan's wife Faryal Makhdoom.

In an extraordinary series of posts on Twitter yesterday, boxer Khan (30) announced he and his wife Faryal Makhdoom (26) had decided to separate and wished her all the best.

However, he then went on to post claims that his wife had been having an affair with Anthony Joshua.

Makhdoom responded with her own accusations against Amir, including a claim he had cheated on her in the past.

Joshua took to Twitter to make light of the situation, posting a video of the song It Wasn't Me by Shaggy. He said: "I hope you guys can resolve your situation or this is a hack as we have never even met!"

Khan's Twitter account has previously been targeted by hackers, as has his wife's.

But in a Snapchat video yesterday, the former unified light-welterweight world champion confirmed his account had not been hacked.

He said: "Everything you saw on social media it is real. Me and Faryal have decided to move on and walk away."
