Anthony Joshua meets Buhari, prostrates for like proper Yoruba boy (see photos)

British-Nigerian boxer Anthony Joshua showed how much of a Yoruba boy he is when he met with President Muhammadu Buhari earlier on Saturday, January 18.

The heavyweight world boxing champion was hosted by Buhari in London, UK, where the Nigerian president is presently visiting for government business.

After shaking hands with the president, Joshua – who recently defeated Andy Ruiz to reclaim his belts – went down flat as a sign of respect.

His action elicited laughter from all the government officials present at the meeting.

The champ also made sure to present his belt to the president, who was more than elated to receive him.

President Buhari is in London for the first-ever UK-Africa summit on investment.

The event is scheduled to hold on Monday and the president will return back to Nigeria on Thursday, January 24.

Governors Yahaya Bello (Kogi), Muhammad Yahaya (Gombe) and Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia) are part of his entourage.

The ministers that accompanied the president are Geoffrey Onyeama (foreign affairs), Nìyí Adebayo (industry, trade and investment), Zainab Ahmed (finance, budget and national planning).
