Amir, who recently gave a tour of the house he shares with wife Faryal Makhdoom, wrote: "Tough day for the family.

"My nephew, son of my brother @harrykingkhan passed away yesterday. The new born didn’t make it." [sic]

He then asked his army of loyal fans to keep his family in mind during their prayers as he added: "May Allah make it easy for the family, especially the mother and father, please keep us in your prayers," alongside a praying hands emoji.

It is thought that Abdul was born on 1 July but tragically passed away on the same day.

Haroon Khan is a boxer like his brother and has won all seven of his professional fights. He also received the bronze medal at the Commonwealth Games back in 2010.

The 29 year old married his wife Arifa Janjua in Pakistan four years ago and they had their first child together, a boy, in 2018.
