Idris Elba has taken on a new professional pursuit: kickboxing.
With training from professional boxer Nigel Benn, the 44-year-old “Beasts Of No Nation” star won his first official kickboxing fight this past Friday at York Hall in Bethnal Green, which was filmed as part of his upcoming three-part docu-series, “Idris Elba: Fighter”, set to air on the Discovery Channel.
The actor’s winning moment was captured for fans on 58-year-old singer Madonna’s official Instagram page, sparking rumours that the pair have been engaged in a secret romance. According to The Sun, Elba and Madonna were later spotted attending a party together at London’s M restaurant, where the two were reportedly seen getting intimate.
On Monday, however, the “Luther” star cleared the air, denying any romance rumours with the “Material Girl” singer. Taking to Twitter, Elba bluntly said, “Am I sleeping with Madonna? No motherf***ers… Don’t believe the hype.”
