British boxer, Amir Khan has praised his ‘forgiving’ wife Faryal Makhdoom over his several cheating scandals.
The boxer, 36, and his wife, 31, made headlines last month when a former BBC presenter accused the sportsman of making sexual advances towards her after they appeared at an event together.
The pair were also said to have separated and they lived apart over the summer after he reportedly asked a bridal model to send him raunchy pictures.
Speaking about his wife of 10 years – with whom he shares children Lamaisah, nine, Alayna, five and three-year-old Muhammad – Amir said: ‘Ah she’s brilliant, yeah, she’s good… Well, she is the big boss.’
He added on the They Don’t Teach This At School with Myleene Klass podcast: ‘I always get told off because I do silly things and I got caught doing silly things and obviously I’m human at the end of it.’

Amir continued: ‘She’s very forgiving, but I think you know if you keep on pushing someone it’s going to get too much, she’s gonna say you know what, get away from me.
‘I can see that she loves me to bits and she’s really caring and stuff, because honestly speaking there’s a lot of stuff that she does behind the scenes that people don’t see.
‘Like for example, you know, she set my training camp up, she set the contracts, the lawyers she deals with, the accountants she deals with, she deals with all the bills that we have in the UK and all that.
‘We have this payment to make, this payment to make. She does everything. I don’t have no house headache, she takes care of all that, like all the admin work, because I can’t do that.
‘But it’s good that she’s taken the pressure away from me on that sense… And you know, sometimes you need someone like a good backbone, and there’s someone there for you. Someone to take that pressure away from you.’
Amir, whose marriage has been overshadowed with cheating claims, allegedly contacted a model named Sumaira, 25, on May 6, three days after he was shown being evicted from the pre-recorded I’m A Celebrity… South Africa.
