Amir Khan's wife Faryal Makhdoom was heard describing a song as "gay" in a Snapchat video.

In the clip posted by boxer Amir this week, he and YouTuber Fayal are seen lying on a bed discussing music.

Faryal is seen cringing with embarrassment to be caught listening to the song, which is barely audible.

"I want people to see the tiger in me, not the wuss'"

"What you listening to?" asks Amir.

"This is such a gay song!" giggles Faryal in response, reports the Daily Mail. "Please don't..."

The mother-of-three then adds: "Everyone needs to see the tiger in me, not the real wuss."

OK then.
