Amir Khan's wife Faryal Makhdoom has finally explained the confusion behind the shocking Anthony Joshua cheating accusations.

Just over a week ago, Olympic champion Amir announced he was splitting from his wife after discovering what he believed to be a Snapchat conversation between her and fellow boxer Anthony Joshua.

As well as shocking most of Twitter, the astonishing public announcement also appeared to have come as a surprise to his wife and mother of his daughter, who tweeted him back saying: "I'm not sure if it's your family tweeting for you. But I'm not the one who been in the papers for cheating."

In the early hours of Friday morning, Faryal told her followers that the furious fall out was all just a huge misunderstanding.

"The screenshots sent to Amir were 'fake' and Amir thought Joshua and I were speaking... when we have never even met. Anger took the better of him and he tweeted away without thinking there was absolutely NO truth to it.

"It's all cleared up with both teams now and again, there was NOTHING like that going on. Apologies for all this nonsense. Let's get on with life now..."

Amir then tweeted his wife's note to Anthony Joshua and acknowledged that there was no "truth to it" and wished him "all the best".

He wrote: "Glad all is cleared up and all lies. I got angry like any man would. No truth to it. Good to know. All the best."

While not going so far as to apologise, he went on to admit the only reason he went to Dubai was to rile her.

"I partied in Dubai with friends to get my wife angry," he shared on Twitter. "Shouldn't have. That's not like me and I'll prove that."

Still, he went on to say the pair were still definitely splitting.

"I still have made my decision to leave Faryal. It happens in life. The relationship was getting unhealthy. I wish her nothing but the best."

Just over a week ago Amir stunned his fans when he announced he was ending things with Faryal and accused her of cheating on him with Joshua.

He wrote: "So me and the wife Faryal have agreed to split. I'm currently in Dubai. Wish her all the best."

He followed it up with a screenshot of a Snapchat conversation, which he claimed was between Faryal and Joshua.

"Faryal moved on quick. Always mentioned to me how much she wanted to be with another guy, from all people another boxer," he tweeted.

"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 disgusted."

He went on: "Left my family and friends for this Faryal. I'm not hurt but another fighter. I'm making it public. You getting the divorce."
