Amir Khan: I've got David Cameron on speed dial

Amir Khan has revealed that he has friends in high places and has David Cameron on speed dial.

The champion boxer was forced to ring the PM when he was refused a visa to travel to the US on September 11 last year.

And the problem was fixed in just minutes.

The Bolton-born fighter was due to commentate on US television on a boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana, but was told he could not fly.

Khan, 28, told the Times Weekend section: "I was flying out on September 11. I think that the American immigration guys get edgy. They just told me my visa was refused and I couldn”t get on the plane.

"David Cameron takes my calls. He is a good friend … I rang him and said I had a bit of a problem. He said, “Hold on a minute” and then he called me back and it was sorted.

"I also met Hillary Clinton in Washington DC and she asked me if I”d had problems, took my name and I haven”t had any problems since. It”s good to have those influential connections. I am grateful for what boxing has given me."
