On 25th March a British-Asian boxer announced that he would donate his 4-storey building to the NHS in an attempt to help the NHS as hospitals raise alarm over shortage of hospital beds to accommodate those affected by Covid-19.

Amir Khan tweeted, "I am aware of how difficult it is to get a hospital bed at this tragic time. I am prepared to give my 60,000 square 4 story building which is due to be a wedding hall and retail outlet to the @NHSuk to help people affected by the coronavirus. Please keep safe.”

Khan is a former light-welterweight world champion and was the World Boxing Association Champion from 2009 till 2012.
