Anthony Joshua, the internationally acclaimed British-Nigerian boxer, is presently immersed in an extraordinary adventure.

He has committed £2,000 to reside alone in complete darkness for four days as part of a retreat. This unconventional retreat style is favored by many athletes, including sporting stars, as a form of meditation to enable them to contemplate their thoughts in solitude.

In a post on Instagram before embarking on the retreat, Joshua wrote: ‘Myself and [my friend] are about to embrace the darkness and solitude for four days (separate rooms).

‘Isolated with nothing to do except relax and clear the mind while being immersed in infinite darkness.’ He will emerge on Friday.

The 34-year-old has been fed via food passed into the room but t. has been no social interaction or light all week.

NFL star Aaron Rodgers, who embarked on a similar retreat, shared his experience in March, stating: ‘It was a great reset for me, for my body and my mind,’ the 39-year-old said of the four-day excursion. ‘Maybe a little bit longer than I needed. I feel like by the time I got to the fourth day, I was like, ”Alright, I’m ready to come out”.
