Amir Khan's wife has shared CCTV images of the men who stole her husband’s watch a gunpoint.

Faryal Makhdoom, 30, shared the video of a pair of hooded individuals who took Khan’s diamond-encrusted watch in Leyton, East London, in an Instagram story.

They then rob the veteran boxer of his £72,000 Franck Muller Vanguard Chronograph watch before making their escape. Makhdoom wrote in her post: “Two men coming out of the car… they knew exactly what time we walked out. Seems like a set up to me, considering we didn't even post where we were. It makes me sick to the stomach to know someone sitting in the restaurant was probably the one plotting this.”

In a later post, Khan's wife posted on her story the serial number of the watch in an attempt to 'find out who's done this'. Meanwhile, Khan said to his followers that he and his wife were unharmed.

He wrote on Twitter: ”'Just had my watch taken off me at gun point in East London, Leyton.

“I crossed the road with Faryal, luckily she was few steps behind me. Two men ran to me, he asked for my watch whilst having a gun pointed in my face. The main thing is we're both safe."

Just hours before, Khan was pictured with a fan at Oxford Street wearing his 719 diamond-studded watch.

An eyewitness told The Sun that the Bolton-born fighter was clearly left shaking. They said: “'They were not hanging around. They got straight into the car and fled. Amir had enjoyed a lovely evening with his wife and had been shopping earlier in the day. It raises real fears he was a deliberate target. It's extremely serious. He was left absolutely terrified.”

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: 'Police were called at 21:15hrs on Monday, 18 April to High Road, Leyton.

“A man aged in his 30s is alleged to have been approached by two males who threatened him with a firearm before stealing his watch and fleeing. There were no reports of any shots fired or any injuries. Police responded and conducted an area search. At this very early stage there have been no arrests. An investigation has begun and police are following a number of enquiries.”

Khan and Makhdoom were married in 2013 and, have three children, Lamisah, Muhammad and Alayna.
