Amir Khan breaches Covid rules AGAIN by making 230-mile round trip to a lavish restaurant

Amir Khan has breached Covid laws again after making a 230-mile round trip from his Bolton home to visit an upmarket restaurant in Coventry.

In a further breach of lockdown rules, Khan was also photographed breaking the two-metre distance rule after a photograph of him posing with his arms around two pals was also posted on the Instagram account of The Farmhouse Coventry.

The restaurant is currently closed because of the lockdown but Khan, 34, visited it on Sunday to enjoy its ‘drive thru’ service where customers can order food and eat it in their cars.

That can’t be right: Amir Khan has breached Covid laws again after making a 230-mile round trip from his Bolton home to visit an upmarket restaurant in Coventry, before posing for a selfie with fans (pictured)

A post accompanying the photograph of Khan and two other men boasted: ‘We were very busy yesterday for our Exclusive Drive Thru but the highlight of the night was @amirkingkhan came through yesterday ! Very nice, humble brother and he loved the Drive Thru!’

Khan, replied: ‘Thanks @thefarmhousecoventry had a lovely time ❤️.’

Under current regulations, people should only leave their home for permitted reasons and should remain in their local area.

Khan lives in a £1.2 million mansion in Bolton with his wife Faryal, 29 and their three children.

His more than 200-mile trip to visit the lavish Farmhouse Coventry restaurant, which brags that it offers ‘high quality’ Indian and English food marks the latest in a series of lockdown breaches by the former world boxing champion.

In December, he was photographed embracing Cristiano Ronaldo at a football awards ceremony in Dubai days after meeting a senior politician in Pakistan who had tested positive for coronavirus.

Under the rules, Khan should have been maintaining a two-metre distance and wearing a face mask wherever possible while those exhibiting symptoms are required to get a test.

Khan and Faryal’s trip to Pakistani and Dubai over Christmas and New Year was already controversial after she was criticised for travelling abroad despite experiencing Covid-19 symptoms.

Dubai was later removed from the UK’s travel corridor list, with travellers returning to the UK forced to quarantine following a 52 per cent surge in the number of COVID -19 cases across the United Arab Emirates. 

Taking to Snapchat following thew announcement, Faryal hit out: ‘The British government has failed the UK.

‘New rules around every corner with practically no warning. Feel like I’m living in a dictatorship.’

Prior to leaving the UK, a surprise birthday party was held for Khan with at least 18 people in a luxurious mansion.

He also posted a video of the large gathering on his social media, telling the camera: ‘All the boys are here.’

Last May, he hosted a family birthday party for his six-year-old daughter.

The boxer and Faryal held the surprise bash for Lamaisah at their home in Bolton and he could not resist posting a video of the event to his 1.3 million Instagram followers.

In the 55 second clip of Lamaisah’s birthday, at least nine relatives could be seen gathered and waiting to surprise the little girl with a cake, contrary to Covid-19 regulations.

A month before in April, Khan ignored social distancing rules after an emotional reunion with his parents, siblings and other relatives for Eid.

That some month, he was criticised for hosting a takeaway dinner for five friends at his home while the country was in lockdown.

Ironically, the boxer had earlier posted a video urging people to remain in their homes and follow the government’s coronavirus advice on social distancing.

Khan has been contacted for comment about his visit to The Farmhouse Coventry.
