Amir Khan reveals daughter, 6, was in the back of £90K Mercedes when it aquaplaned on motorway and collided with barrier

AMIR Khan has revealed his six-year-old daughter was in the back of his £90,000 Mercedes when he crashed into a barrier on the M6.

The boxer wrecked the white motor after doing a "360" on the wet road on Saturday night.




He today revealed he was travelling with wife Faryal Makhdoom and young daughter Lamaisah to do a TV show in London when the horror unfolded.

Khan, 33, said on Instagram: "Everyone is OK, safe. Lamaisah was in the back. She was asleep at the time, she is OK as well.

"Faryal was sat in the front with me, she's OK.

"We're more shocked than anything."

The boxing champ posted photos of the damaged S350 after the crash – including snaps showing the front bumper hanging off.

The hood can also be seen jutting up, while the back of the car is also badly smashed.

Recalling the smash, Khan said: "I know the car looks really bad – the front, back and sides are all damaged.

"The car literally did a 360 and hit the barriers.

"But I'm glad that's everyone's safe and we have to get on with our normal day now." 




Khan also urged his followers to say safe on Britain's roads after the recent downpours.

He said: "I just want to tell everyone to be safe. We were only going 70mph when the car spun out.

"You have to be very careful guys, stay safe."

Khan yesterday revealed he was on the M6 southbound between junctions 12 and 13 when the flashy motor aquaplaned.

He compared the crash as "like being hit with a combo".


Khan has an impressive super-car collection, and already owns a £271,000 Lamborghini Aventador, a £233,000 Rolls Royce Phantom and a £65,000 Range Rover.

He also recently revealed he was thinking of spending £264,000 on another Rolls Royce to add to his collection.

Five years ago, he bought a Mercedes S63 but last night's crash appears to have involved a new Merc, the S350.

It's not the first time Khan has faced drama with his luxury cars.

In 2012, a gang of armed yobs tried to steal his £100,000 Range Rover.

On top of that, the Bolton-born boxer has revealed he's called in the lawyers to probe the alleged mismanagement of a wedding venue he’s building in his home town.

And he also said a new team was on board to finish his stalled wedding venue and lawyers were investigating the 'mess-up'.

The former unified light-welterweight world champion wrote on his Twitter account last month: "Current cost £11.4m.

"Hurtful. I've been f***** over somewhere. My money is blood money and to be treated like this is very hurtful.”

The Brit boxer rose to fame after claiming silver at the 2004 Athens Olympics.

He is also a former unified light-welterweight world champion, having held the WBA (later Super) title from 2009 to 2012, and the IBF title in 2011.

He is married to Faryal Makhdoom and has three kids.
