Amir Khan has announced he has split from his wife in a series of explosive tweets which seemingly accuse her of ‘moving on quickly’ with fellow boxer Anthony Joshua.

The former Olympic star posted five tweets from Dubai in which he declared he is “making it public”, including a screenshot of text messages.

It would appear the tweets were genuine after his wife Faryal Makhdoom Khan hit back, saying the boxer did not need to post “stupid tweets”.

Khan, 30, began by writing on Friday afternoon: “So me and the wife Faryal have agreed to split. I’m currently in Dubai. Wish her all the best.”

He then posted another tweet, including Joshua’s handle, which read: “Faryal moved on quick. Always mentioned to me how much she wanted to be with another guy, from all people another boxer.”

Khan added: “Lol moved up in the weight classes lol. Trust me I ain’t the jealous type. No need to send me pictures of the men your talking to.”

“Left my family and friends for this Faryal. I’m not hurt but another fighter. I’m making it public. You getting the divorce.”

He signed off by referencing world heavyweight champion Joshua again, saying: “Mans like Joshua can have my left overs!”

But Faryal, a model and the mother of his child, was quick to respond on Twitter, telling her followers: “I’m sorry to all the fans & family hurt by this. But amir did not need to do stupid tweets accusing others when he’s in the wrong.”

“I think he just needs some attention because boxing hasn’t been going well for him so he’s just been acting up.”

Khan, from Bolton, won silver at the Olympic games in Athens in 2004. Joshua, 27, from Watford, is an Olympic gold medallist and remains undefeated in his professional career.

The Standard has contacted representatives of Khan and Joshua for comment.
