The 22-year-old, who challenges for the WBA light-welterweight title in Manchester on Saturday, was questioned by police as he was behind the wheel of his Range Rover when the accident happened in Bolton.

The cyclist was taken to hospital after he suffered a head injury, although it is not thought to be serious.

However no action will be taken against Khan after police concluded that the Olympic silver medallist was not to blame for the incident in Moor Lane following interviews with a number of witnesses.

A spokeswoman for Greater Manchester Police said: "Several witnesses at the scene have been interviewed.

"The driver was not at fault in the collision, and no further action will be taken on this matter."
