Khan, whose parents were born in India and lived in Pakistan before emigrating to the United Kingdom, responded immediately by saying: "Home's south London, mate".

London Mayor Sadiq Khan tactfully tackled an awkward situation which arose when a media reporter asked how "coming home" felt like to him as the mayor stepped across the Wagha Border into Pakistan.

Sharing images from the trip, he tweeted: "Honour to visit the most sacred place in the world for the Sikh faith - the handsome Golden Temple here in Amritsar, India". He had earlier stayed in India for three days where he met politicians and other important personages in Mumbai, Delhi and Amritsar.
