Amir Khan was once led to believe he had lost £2 million in a hilarious prank from his own wife, Faryal Makhdoom.
The former Olympic silver-medallist was filmed as he reacted to his wife pretending to regret a banking mistake that was going to cost him £2 million. Makhdoom subsequently uploaded the video of the prank to YouTube. It is no surprise that it attracted more than half a million views.
The prank left Makhdoom acting utterly devasted with her head in her hands. Khan was obviously very angry and couldn't believe she had made such a costly mistake, after she had explained what had supposedly gone wrong.

"What the f*** do you do all day? From £20 to £2million you dumb f***. What is wrong with you Faryal? What the f***'s wrong with your head?" asked a livid Khan. The ex-light welterweight world champion was not taking the news well at all.
After he had calmed down a little, Khan asked his wife to phone Sam, who works for him presumably as an accountant. He said that Khan would only be able to transfer £10,000 a day. Khan was again left highly frustrated, remarking wryly that he'll "be dead by then!"
Makhdoom couldn't bear any longer to leave her husband fretting the loss of such a large sum of money. She slipped into conversation the statement: "By the way we pranked you... do you really think I'm going to transfer two million?"
Khan started smiling but said nothing. He wouldn't admit it, but he seemed speechless - and of course highly relieved. Makhdoom told Khan that cameras had caught the whole thing. Up on YouTube the whole thing went.
