- Anthony Joshua must have sprained his ankle during the lockdown
- The 30-year-old was spotted wearing a thigh brace while stepping out for a scooter ride with friends
- The two-time heavyweight champion last fought in December 2019 after reclaiming his belts from Andy Ruiz
Anthony Joshua appears to have injured his ankle during the lockdown in London after being seen wearing a leg brace around his thigh.
The 30-year-old heavyweight champion took time off over the weekend to ride an automated scooter with a few friends.
Dressed in a black tracksuit and a face cap, WBA, WBO and IBF title holder posed for the camera with a brief smile while holding the two-wheel ride with his other hand.
Meanwhile, a source close to his camp told SunSport: "Anthony felt a slight twinge in his knee while training.
"The brace is a precautionary measure on the advice of physios. "It will be further checked by his doctors but there is no immediate concern."
Joshua didn't feel like he was badly hurt while moving around despite being cautious with the brace tied around his thigh to his ankle.
The British boxer of Nigerian descent was cautious enough not to break the government's lockdown guidelines with just six of them meeting outdoors to enjoy the sun.
He is initially scheduled to fight Kubrat Pulev this summer but the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic has scattered the arrangement.
Although sporting activities have been given the green light to return to England, it is unsure when the mandatory fight will take place.
The two-time heavyweight winner was said to have showered encomiums on the NHS and other frontline workers during this period.
Joshua has never struggled with a serious leg injury during his career, he did complain of walking "doubled over" after a Thai massage just before his clash against Wladimir Klitschko in April 2017.
He said: "Two weeks before the Wladimir Klitschko fight, I went for a Thai massage and the lady pulled my arm down by my leg and it cramped my back.
"Two weeks before the biggest fight of my life, I swear I was walking doubled over."
Joshua recently opened up to SunSport about how he seemingly has it all in life - apart from someone to share it with.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Anthony Joshua has claimed he is the greatest heavyweight boxer in his generation ahead of rivals Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder.
The 30-year-old WBA, WBO and IBF champion authoritatively staked his claim that he would be the best in the division for years to come.
