But the 27-year-old finally nipped out in public for the first time today as he popped out to grab a coffee on the way top visiting his mum’s house in north London.

The bruising evident around the face in the immediate aftermath of his epic world title triumph appears to have died down.

And Joshua was able to go about his business without fuss as passers by failed to even notice who it was they were close to.

There is only a small amount of dark markings around the left eye that swelled up after his bruising encounter with giant Ukrainian Klitschko.

Joshua also paid a visit to a local boxing gym where he was taking part in filming for a new documentary programme.

The 2012 London Olympic gold medal hero is a well-known sight around the streets of Finchley, north London, where he stopped off for a coffee.

His mother and family live in the area – and he also uses the launderette on the High Road to wash all his training gear.

Joshua admitted the day after he netteed £15million from his Klitschko fight that he still had an outstanding £120 bill with the launderette.

And the shop’s boss Max Bakhtari insists he still wants the fighter to clear his tabbecause he needs the money more than Joshua does.

Joshua is currently taking a rest to recover from Saturday’s battle in front of a 90,000 sell-out crowd at Wembley which has gone down as one of British boxing’s greatest nights.

He is now one of the biggest names in sport around the world and has been tipped to dominate the heavyweight division for years to come.

Beaten foe Klitschko says he is still to decide whether he wants to exercise the right to a rematch written into their contract, which would sure to be a big sell around the globe.

American star Deontay Wilder and New Zealand’s Joseph Parker – who hold the other two world titles at heavyweight – have also been linked with unification fights.

While Tyson Fury, who is still suspended after admitting drug taking in the wake of beating Klitschko in 2015, has been outspoken about his desire to fight Joshua.
