British-Pakistani boxer Amir Khan shocked social media when reports of his alleged affairs emerged online after an expose by British tabloid The Sun. BBC Asian Network presenter Suzi Mann accused the boxer of sexual advances and flirting through text messages. The boxer’s wife, Faryal Makhdoom, appeared to have split from the boxer as reports emerged claiming that she was taking her time to decide whether to end the marriage or not.

However, on a recent appearance at ‘This Morning’, Amir confirmed he had reconciled with his wife, and she was now encouraging him to go back to the gym.

“I’m not a spring chicken. I’ve not trained for two years.”


“My wife has started having a go at me saying to get in the gym, saying you’ve started to get a dad’s body.”

“I used to see a gym and go in, now I see a gym and walk past it.”

The former boxer publicly apologised to his wife in July on his Instagram account, saying he was provoked by the countless women who slipped into his dms:

“I thank her for the help she got me. I like to apologise to those who I may have hurt. I made a mistake and I was provoked when they slip into my DMs.”

Faryal fuelled separation rumors by posting a cryptic note on her Instagram stories on Friday: “Fall in love with someone who doesn’t make you think love is hard.”
