BOLTON's Amir Khan has asked fans to pray for his mother as she undergoes an operation.

Amir's mother, Falak, 54, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in January and the boxer has been supporting her in her battle ever since.

He posted on his social media that she was due to be undergoing an operation today, adding that he was "praying she will come out cancer free."

Amir posted earlier this year that Falak had been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.

In his latest post yesterday, Amir wrote: "Please do make a special prayer for my mum, Falak Khan. She has a big operation tomorrow for her pancreatic cancer.

"Praying she will come out cancer free! May God give her strength."
