Bolton, July 14 (ANI): British boxer Amir Khan would be questioned by police after he collided with a teen cyclist, who had been trying to keep up with the boxing star's luxury car.

The incident had happened when the 22-year-old was driving his white Range Rover back to his home in Bolton on Sunday, The Daily Star reports.

According to reports, the 14-year-old boy had suffered head injuries after being thrown from the mountain bike.
