Pakistan’s legendary fast bowler Wasim Akram has shared his morning routine that helps him stay fit and healthy, even after retiring from cricket many years ago. And honestly, it will put every lazy person to shame.

On Tuesday, the former left-arm pacer posted a video on his X (formerly Twitter) account saying, “”I woke up at 6:30am, had six units of insulin, drank coffee and then went for a morning walk.” Akram, fondly called the Sultan of Swing, was diagnosed with diabetes at a very young age.

After walking around 8.5 kilometres, he moved on to his breakfast which included low-fat yoghurt coupled with fruits such as Bananas, blueberries, muesli, and “bird food” i.e., raisins and nuts.


“After this breakfast, I’ll have a lot more energy,” he said, adding that he will head off to the gym right afterwards.

“People from Pakistan, India might notice me not having nihari and naan (flatbread), I don’t eat that. This is my breakfast and the healthiest one,” he noted.

The pacer is known for his exceptional bowling skills in cricket. He now leads a healthy and active lifestyle, regularly posting videos and pictures on social media that offer a glimpse into his fitness routine.
