The Olympian, 33, announced the news with a post on Instagram to his 1.3 million followers.

He shared a photo from St Mary’s Hospital of the newborn lying against his bare chest and wearing a knitted hat.

Khan wrote: “My beautiful Son Muhammad Zaviyar Khan was born today 22/02/20 weighing 7lbs 12oz.”

He added the hashtags #dadofthree, #alhumdulilah and #blessed.

The pair already share two daughters – Lamaisah, who was born in 2014, and Alayna, who was born in 2018.

Khan married his wife in 2013 although they briefly split around 2017 before reconciling.
