Khan had been out for dinner with wife Faryal, 31, and friend Omar Khalid at the Sahara Grill in Leyton, East London, when the robbery took place.

Ahmed Bana, Nurul Amin and Ismail Mohammed, all 25, deny conspiracy to commit robbery while jurors heard Dante Campbell, 21, has admitted to being the gunman

CCTV played to jurors shows the former world boxing champion smiling as he leaves the restaurant with his wife.

He then crosses the road to get in a car driven by Omar when two men get out of a silver Mercedes coupe.

A hooded man then runs towards Khan and raises his arm to point the gun at the boxer, who hands over his watch.

Khan previously told Snaresbrook Crown Court how he was left staring down the barrel of the gun.

He added: “I am a sportsman, a fighter, I have been put in the toughest situations but this is something different, this is really really scary.

“When he put the gun to my face I couldn’t recognise him because he had a mask on. I looked away because I didn’t want him to pull the trigger.

“I didn’t know what he wanted at first, then he said take off your watch. When he said ‘take off your watch’ that’s when he hit me straight away.

“I took it off straight away and that’s when I handed it to him.”

Khan also told how Faryal was left “screaming and crying” following the horror.

Bana, of Hale Gardens, Tottenham, Amin, of Cavendish Road, Finsbury Park, and Mohammed, of Edmonton, all deny conspiracy to commit robbery.

Bana also denies having an imitation firearm.

Campbell, of Hornsey has admitted conspiracy to commit robbery and possession of an imitation firearm.

The trial continues.
