The out-of-the-ring fight between Amir Khan and Nigerian-born boxer, Anthony Joshua has been settled.

Khan on Friday said he has cleared the air with Joshua after the heavyweight champion was unwittingly drawn into a bizarre row between Khan and his wife.

Last week, Khan stated his intention to split from wife Faryal in a series of angry tweets, which saw Joshua repeatedly named as an accomplice.

The woman in the middle of the storm, Faryal Makhdoom has now posted on Twitter that her husband had been sent "fake screenshots" alleging that her and Joshua had been speaking, adding that the two "have never even met".

She added that "it's all cleared up now" and Amir Khan tweeted Joshua to say: "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.

Joshua has also accepted the apology from Khan with this tweet.
