World heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has offered to be Prince Harry’s best man, after appearing on radio at the royal’s request.
Joshua was interviewed on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme when Harry took over the current affairs show on Wednesday as guest editor.
He appeared at the request of the prince, who boxed during his time in the Army, and was interviewed in the sports round-up segment about his career. The WBA and IBF champion later tweeted a picture of himself and the prince:
Harry will marry fiancee Meghan Markle on May 19 but it is widely believed he will choose his older brother the Duke of Cambridge to be his best man.
William showed his affection for Harry by picking him as his best man when he married in 2011, dispensing with the tradition that male members of the royal family have one or more “supporters”.
Harry has previously confessed he used boxing to get out his frustrations when he was coming to terms with the death of his mother Diana, Princess of Wales, and still uses the sport to de-stress.
