Three brothers have been given the unique opportunity to quiz a professional English boxer inside his home gym. 

Twelve year-old triplets Ilyas, Ibrahim and Ismail Hussain of Gants Hill met with two-time world lightweight champion Amir Khan at his Bolton home on August 12.  

Their father had arranged the special visit through their Taekwondo training at Guruma martial arts club based in East Ham, and as part of GB's National Cadet Team. 

Ilford school pupils Ilyas and Ibrahim of Beal High School in Woodford Bridge Road, and Ismail of Ilford County High in Fremantle Road, quizzed the Olympic medalist on his career highlights, idols, and discipline in training.
