Kieran Keddle, head coach at Double K Gym, coached actor Elba ahead of a professional fight in Thailand last month, and said he had become a "family member of the gym".

Elba, who stars in Luther, told the Australian Daily Telegraph: "It has been my dream to fight in a ring properly. It is not fake, I might get hurt but ultimately I have trained for it and I like to fight."
