Three men have been accused of robbery of former world boxing champion Amir Khan.

The sports star and his wife, Faryal Makhdoom, were crossing the road in Lytton, London when two men approached them.

It is alleged that a gun was aimed at Khan and he ordered the surrender of his £71,000 watch during the April incident.

At the time, the former boxer tweeted: “My watch just took me off at gunpoint in East London, Lytton. I crossed the road with Ferial – fortunately she was a few steps behind me.

“The main thing is that we are both safe.”

The Metropolitan Police said Ahmed Bana, 25, Noor Amin, 24, and Dante Campbell, 20, will appear in Tames Magistrates Court today.

Bana, of Hill Gardens, north London, was charged with conspiracy to commit theft and possession of a fake firearm.

Amin, of Cavendish Road, north London, was charged with conspiracy to commit a burglary.

Campbell, of Denmark Street, also in north London, was charged with conspiracy to commit theft and possession of a fake firearm.

He was allegedly carrying the gun with the intent to “incite fear of violence” and was in possession of ammunition for the firearm without a certificate.

Detective Sgt. Lee Rington, from the Met’s Specialized Crime Command, confirmed the arrests.

“Tackling theft is a major priority for the Met, and these arrests demonstrate our commitment to getting those who intend to use violence, or threaten violence, off our streets,” he said.

In the wake of the accident in April, Khan’s wife Faryal wrote on Instagram that the accident made her feel “sick in her stomach”.

The couple had just left the Sahara Grill when they were ambushed.

A photo of Khan with a fan was posted online earlier in the day, in which the Olympic medalist’s watch was clearly displayed.

No shots were fired during the incident.

At the time, the 35-year-old told MailOnline: “`This whole thing has left me and Ferial very shaken and scared. Don’t expect to be robbed at gunpoint, not in London. This is the thing that happens in the United States but not in England.

I’m lucky to be alive, and once the thieves escaped, I just wanted to hug my wife and kids.

“Thinking about my family kept me from confronting them because if I did, I might die now.”
