Amir Khan visits Southall again

Amir Khan visits Southall again, to lend support to Southalls attempt to base the Pakistan 2012 London Olympic team in Southall.

The President of the Pakistan Olympic association, Gen (Retd) Syed Arif Hasan visited Southall on Thursday to see if the local facilities were suitable to house the Pakistan Olympic team.

The Southall initiative is led by local business leader Dalawar Majid Chaudhry, who said "We have the capability, the community spirit and support, the vibrant cultural benefits and above all the cuisine, to host Team Pakistan."

Southall would be a "home away from home" for Team Pakistan.

In the evening a press conference was held at Chaudhry’s TKC restaurant. Those present to greet Gen (Retd) Syed Arif Hasan and his guide, an Olympic official, were Ealing Southall MP Virendra Sharma, local councillors, Ealing Council representatives and fans of Southall's adopted "Role Model".

Special guest of honour at the event was Southall’s "Role Model" boxer Amir Khan.

He dined at the restaurant before the conference. After the conference he signed autographs and was happy to be photographed with his fans.
