Boxer swaps the ring for Jubilee Square at Christmas tree event

Olympic medal-winning boxer Amir Khan drew a huge crowd of fans at Woking Asian Business Forum's official handover of a Christmas tree for the town of Woking.

Khan was handing over the tree on behalf of the Woking Asian Business Forum, which is headed up by his uncle, Woking businessman and chairman of the forum, Shahid Azeem.

He said: “I’m honoured to be here to offer my support to the Asian Business Forum, who are promoting the festive celebrations in Woking.

"I was amazed how many youngsters turned up on this cold evening, and so late in the evening, to be at the presentation.

"It’s a fantastic way to mark the good relations between the different cultures here in Woking and to wish everyone a Happy Christmas.”
