Two-time unified heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua was allegedly seen flirting with a Manchester’s City player, Riyad Mahrez’s wife, Rita at London club Tape on Friday.
According to The Sun UK, the lady, who has two kids for her soon-to-be divorced Algerian husband, placed her hand on the British professional boxer’s knee.
A clubgoer narrated the whole incident saying;
“Rita bumped into AJ on her way out and he invited her to join him at his table in VIP.
“Rita, who was with a female pal, clearly thought AJ was incredibly hot. They then spent much of the evening laughing and flirting.
“He didn’t have a clue who she was. He simply thought she was a pretty girl and enjoyed their chat.
“But when the club owner pointed out she was Riyad’s wife, AJ got a bit awkward, and totally backed away.
“He explained he didn’t want to step on any toes or cause a scene, and that he’d be stupid to be seen doing anything in public. They left with friends at 3am, but got into separate cars.”
