Anthony Joshua shows his class by sending necessities to Nigeria and pays tribute to NHS heroes fighting coronavirus

 ANTHONY JOSHUA has yet again shown his class by sending much-needed basics to Nigeria - while also paying tribute to the NHS heroes fighting coronavirus.

The world heavyweight boxing champion, 30, has sent boxes of much-needed supplies to Nigeria having been prevented from visiting in person, as planned, due to coronavirus.Joshua has also teamed-up with Under Armour to send 2,000 products to NHS workers at Watford General Hospital

And he has also sent Under Armour clothing to Watford General, where he was born, to help hospital workers through this tough time.

In a clip posted on social media, Joshua could be heard narrating over a video of people in Nigeria collecting their "free gift" packages from the British boxing star.

Joshua said: "It's 2019 and I'm visiting Nigeria. I was planning on teaming up with some of the local community leaders to contribute to some of their events.

"But due to the global pandemic these plans have come to a halt.

"During this crisis, we thought it would be best to put some basic necessities together for some of the people who may need it.

"So here's to Nigeria. One love, people. And I'll see you soon."

In the clip, the locals piled praise on Joshua - who recently revealed how his time in Nigeria changed him for the better - for his selfless deed.


And Joshua has also revealed he has teamed up with sporting goods giants Under Armour to send 2,000 of their products to Watford General, the hospital in which he was born.

Items include HeatGear T-shirts which feel cool, dry and light, as well as its Recovery sleepwear and tracksuits to help make staff feel more comfortable after working long shifts.

In a video on Instagram, Joshua said: "I was born in Watford General and those that know me, know that Watford will forever run through my veins.

"I saw that Under Armour have been doing some great things globally supporting key workers during this pandemic.

"So I teamed up with Under Armour to support something near and dear to my heart.
