MANCHESTER: Amir Khan has offered his multi-million pound building in Bolton to the NHS to fight coronavirus.

The £5m facility was set to become a wedding hall in August, but the boxer announced his plan to donate the space to the health service on his Facebook page.

He said: “I am aware of how difficult it is for the public to get a hospital bed in this tragic time. “I am prepared to give my 60,000 square foot 4 story building which is due to be a wedding hall and retail outlet to the @NHSuk to help people affected by the coronavirus.”

He also asked his fans to keep safe from the deadly virus. Three people in Bolton have died after testing positive for COVID-19. There have been 19 confirmed cases in the borough.
