Anthony Joshua met the Queen of England as he spoke in front of the Royal Family during a service to celebrate Commonwealth Day on Monday.

Britain’s unified heavyweight world champion, who proudly also represents his Nigerian background, was chosen to give a reflection at Westminster Abbey.

Joshua began: “My name is Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua and, like many of you here, I’m a child of the Commonwealth.

After the speech, Joshua briefly met and spoke one-to-one with the Queen.

It was his first time meeting the monarch as his previously-awarded MBE and OBEs had been presented to him by Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace.
