Amir Khan has jetted back to London from Dubai after being caught sexting another woman and separating from his wife Faryal Makhdoom.
The former professional boxer, 36, took to his Instagram Stories on Friday to share that he was leaving Dubai, where he has been staying, and returning to the UK.
His post came hours after MailOnline revealed that Amir and his wife Faryal, 31, have separated and are said to be splitting their time between their homes in Dubai and Britain while Faryal decides whether she wants to end their 10-year marriage.
Elsewhere on Friday, Faryal took to her own Instagram Stories to share a string of cryptic posts about ‘love’ and ‘loose ends’ after Amir was caught sexting another woman.
Amir shared a video on Friday confirming that a car was picking him up and taking him to the airport in Dubai for a flight back to London. It is not known where Faryal is currently staying.

He later shared a selfie of himself lying back and relaxing on the aeroplane as he prepared to have a nap on the nearly eight-hour long flight.
Meanwhile, Faryal took to Instagram to share a cryptic message about falling in love with someone who doesn’t make it seem ‘hard’.
She wrote: ‘Fall in love with someone who doesn’t make you think love is hard.’
In another post, Faryal shared a poem about the main character of a book ‘finding their love’ and ‘shining’ bright.
It read: ‘Just like a book, I hope the second half writes a perfect tale where all loose ends find their place.’
Elsewhere this week, Amir also shared a birthday tribute to Faryal on Instagram, uploading a snap of both of them smiling together.
Amir, who is currently in Dubai, captioned it: ‘Happy birthday Faryal. You deserve the world and more,’ with a heart emoji.
He then reiterated the message on his Story as he added another photo of his wife and wrote: Since its 12am in Dubai, I want to wish Faryal a happy birthday.’
In the second post, his wife looked stunning as she posed for a selfie with a full face of glamorous make-up.

It comes after MailOnline exclusively revealed that Amir and Faryal have separated and are currently living apart after he was caught sexting another woman.
Amir’s tumultuous marriage to the mother of his three children is on the rocks after the sportsman approached bridal model Sumaira online and eventually asked her to send raunchy pictures.
It is understood that Amir and Faryal are now separated and are splitting their time between their homes in Dubai and Britain while Faryal decides whether she wants to end their 10-year marriage.
A source close to the Khan family told MailOnline: ‘Faryal is taking time to think about whether or not to walk away. She’s going through a very difficult time and choosing to focus on her children while she and Amir continue to co-parent.’
MailOnline contacted Amir for comment at the time.
Amir admitted he ‘regretted’ messaging model Sumaira, revealing he’d contacted her out of ‘boredom’ and telling The Sun that he’d go through therapy to stop him sexting other women.
Asked if he would attend therapy sessions, he said, according to The Sun: ‘That question hasn’t been brought up before.
‘But maybe I do need help to stop me from messaging other women. I am willing to go to therapy to stop me sending texts to women who aren’t my wife.
‘I think nowadays with mental health issues, any help goes a long way. It’s definitely something I would do. Things like that do help, so maybe it’s something to think about.’

The sportsman said Faryal was ‘disgusted’ at the news of him messaging another woman, with her telling him: ‘If you have a diamond at home, why do you want to mess around with rocks and stones?’
Amir admitted his behaviour was ‘not nice’ and noted that his children will one day read about what happened, which he said will ‘upset them’.
Initially complimenting the model’s tattoos, Amir’s messages quickly turned racy, telling the model that she ‘looked good (in a) G string’, suggesting that she’d had a boob job and asking her to send raunchy pictures, before then trying to meet up with her in person.
Faryal appeared to defend her husband, blasting Sumaira in a lengthy Instagram post after the model claimed Amir had told her his marriage was ‘a bit of a business arrangement’.
On Instagram, she said she ‘refuses to play out my marriage publicly’ and said that ‘after a long week of accusations, slander and harassment I have decided it is now time to address the situation that has unfolded’.
Earlier this month, it was alleged Amir contacted bridal model Sumaira online and said that he and Faryal were ‘not properly together’ and that their marriage was ‘a bit of a business arrangement’.
Amir later hit out at the claims in a chat with Geo News, claiming Sumaira had sent him raunchy pictures unsolicited.
Addressing his denial, Sumaira, 25, shared a TikTok video in which she accused the boxer of lying and threatened to disclose more screenshots of their conversations, prompting his wife Faryal to address the remarks in an Instagram Story.

Faryal, who shares three children with boxer Amir, described Sumaira’s actions as a ‘hate campaign’ and has denied that she is ‘responsible for Sumaria’s current mental state’.
Implying that she was standing by Amir, Faryal said ‘the whole world is aware of his track record’ and insisted that Sumaira must have been aware he was married when she sent him revealing photos.
‘Over the duration of the last 7 days, I had had private conversations of mine dissected and torn apart by an alleged ‘legal representative’ acting on behalf of Sumaira, who has taken to social media with what I can only describe as a hate campaign,’ Faryal wrote.
‘My name has been used in almost every single story she has posted in a bid to tarnish my reputation and name label me as not only a woman who has no ‘self respect’ but Amir’s supporter and enabler in these circumstances, all because I refuse to publicise the private dealings I have with my husband.’
‘How I deal with my marriage and my husband is not the concern of anyone else. I refuse to play out my marriage publicly, the situation has been humiliating enough for me and I will not further play in the spectacle created by others in order to satisfy their desires.
‘I will stand strong in my stance that I did not owe Sumaira anything more than a civil conversation.’
Faryal then addressed Sumaria’s claims that she was unaware Amir was married, writing: ‘This woman was not under the impression that Amir was a single bachelor, yet she continued on speaking to him whilst gathering her evidence to take to social media.’
Revealing what she said to Sumaria in a ‘civil conversation’ Fayral wrote that ‘I knew what the outcome of this situation would be and I forewarned her not to take this to social media.’
‘I explained that the situation would cause immense embarrassment not only for her but for my family also and that in the end no one wins.’
‘I am a woman who receives abuse on a daily basis simply for existing and I knew she would also receive the same for even entertaining a married man, no matter what spin she put on the story.’
‘I’m now being made responsible for Sumaria’s current mental state. Her ‘legal representaive has claimed that Sumaria suffering with her mental health as a result of her social media presence and exposures in her exchanges with my husband Amir and this has somehow become my fault too.’
‘I was the one who was disrespected, lied to and embroiled in scandal and once again, it has become my fault.’

‘Amir and Sumera are both adults who engaged in consented communication. They did not consult me when exchanging messages nor did they consider or respect me when building a “bond.”‘
‘I will not be dragged through the mud now for not “supporting another woman”. This woman had no respect or regard for me as a woman and as Amir’s wife. There was also no consideration of my mental health.’
‘I am not in control of Amir’s actions not those of Sumaira. I had a civil conversation with her which is more than most women in my position would be willing to do.’
Faryal finished her statement by addressing Amir’s previous ‘scandals,’ explaining: ‘I am being criticised for being Amir’s wife, for still staying with him knowing his “track record”.
‘This is the man I am married too and have three young children with. The whole world is aware of his track record, his reputation precedes him, why would you as a single woman want to engage in a conversation with him at all?’
‘My focus is my children and shielding them from all that is happening.’
