Khan, whose parents are from Pakistan, vowed to help rebuild the Army Public School devastated by a terrorist attack, media reported.

Condemning the heinous crime, Bolton-born boxer prayed at the site of the massacre to lend his support before Christmas.

He spoke to young survivors and encouraged them to return to school.

Last week, he donated to the school the pair of shorts – worth £30,000 with a waistband made from 24-carat gold threading – he wore in his recent victory against American Devon Alexander.

The Bolton favourite also announced to build a boxing academy in Lahore.

He tweeted: “Big announcement — the 1st Amir Khan Academy will be in Lahore Pakistan. It will be ready in July 2015.”
