Anthony Joshua Speaks On Christmas And Nigerian Jollof Rice To Thierry Henry

The love for Nigeria and its Jollof rice seems big in the heart of world boxing champion, Anthony Joshua as he kept other sporting business aside, to discuss the local food with Thierry Henry.

The Heavyweight champion spent time with former Arsenal striker on Tuesday, with both stars sharing selfies of the meeting on social media.

Their meeting was highlighted by Joshua’s invitation of the Arsenal legend to Nigeria at Christmas to have a taste of Jollof rice.

Joshua, who has recently been nominated for the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year award, shared the snap on both Twitter and Instagram.

He wrote: “Good to see you @thierryhenry. P.S. There’s a seat for you at the Christmas table.”

Henry was more than happy to accept, captioning his own picture: “Great to see you today Champ @anthony_joshua. P.S. Keep that seat free for me at your Christmas table #jollofrice”

Jollof Rice is a classic Nigerian dish traditionally served at Christmas – it seems like Henry has already decided on the menu!
