Boxer Amir Khan has been splashed across a different kind of canvas - after sitting for a painting which will be exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery.
The sportsman will enter the ring for a crucial welterweight clash against Devon Alexander in Las Vegas tomorrow.
But ahead of the clash, he has been captured in oils as part of the Sky Arts Portrait Artist Of The Year contest, by the appropriately named finalist Christian Hook.
The artwork, which depicts Khan's left arm blurred as if it was in motion, will be displayed at the NPG from Tuesday in an exhibition of works from each of the finalists.
It will go on to be transferred to the boxer's hometown and added to the permanent collection at Bolton Museum and Art Gallery.

Khan had a half-day sitting with Hook, who then had a further fortnight to complete his work.
The boxer was too tied up with training to see it unveiled, although his father Shah Khan and Bolton councillor John Byrne went along to see the finished work and were filmed for the final episode of the Sky Arts series.
"I've never had a portrait painted of myself so I'm quite excited about it," Khan said of the process. "People have seen me as Amir Khan the boxer. I hope Christian has captured the other side of me; I do a lot of charitable work, so capturing me as a role model for youngsters is great. I want people to see that side of me."
He went on: "I said, you don't tell me how to fight and I won't tell you how to paint. I'll just let you get on with it."
Hook's portrait also includes a blurred image of Khan holding a child's hand to symbolise his charitable work.
The boxer's father said: "I think the portrait is incredible. He's captured all my son's features. It's life-like."
The semi-final of the programme is screened on Sky Arts 1 at 8pm on Tuesday, while Khan's fight is on Sky Sports 1 on Sunday at 2am.
