Boxer Amir Khan is kicked off American Airlines flight by US police after mask row



British boxer Amir Khan has clamied he was kicked off an American Airlines flight by US police after a facemask row.



The 34-year-old also alleged that he had been 'banned' by the carrier.



In a video posted to Twitter, he said he was trying to fly to a training camp in Colorado from New York, but he and a colleague were removed when someone complained his colleague's mask 'was not high enough'.



Khan said: 'I was taken off the plane today when I was going to training camp to Colorado Springs by the police.



'Obviously a complaint was made by American Airlines staff, they said that my colleague's mask was not high enough and not up, that they had to stop the plane and take me and my friend off when I did nothing wrong.



'They kicked us both off, I was sat on 1A, he was sat on 1B - I find it so disgusting and so disrespectful, I was supposed to go to Colorado springs for a training camp and now I'm back in New York for another day.
