Anthony Joshua stuns Specsavers staff as he drops in for eye test without warning ahead of Oleksandr Usyk rematch

Joshua is currently training in Loughborough ahead of his hotly-anticipated rematch with Oleksandr Usyk next month.

And he is making sure his eyes are in tip-top condition ahead of the bout.

Joshua booked in a last minute test with optometrist and director Tej Chauhan, who initially kept the boxer’s visit secret from staff.

Chauhan told SunSport it was an “honour and a privilege” to have AJ in the shop for a test.

A relaxed AJ was more than happy to pose for pictures with shop staff when news of his visit spread.

The 6ft 6in boxer also kindly spent some time chatting to those who work in the store.

The team also wished Joshua luck for his upcoming fight against Usyk.

Joshua dressed casually in a white T-shirt and trousers, completed with a cap and shades, as he posed for snaps with shop staff.

AJ visited the Loughborough branch of Specsavers on the recommendation of fellow Brit boxers Frazer Clarke and Richard Riakporhe.

The trio all train locally at Loughborough University.

The state-of-the-art facilities at the university are often used by elite athletes, meaning the team at Specsavers Loughborough are no strangers to dealing with professional sportspeople.

Joshua relocated from Sheffield to train in Loughborough earlier this year.
