Imran Khan and his wives

Leading the race to become Pakistan's Prime Minister, Imran Khan will always be remembered as the enigmatic 'Kaptaan', who transformed an immensely talented but fractious bunch of cricketers into world beaters. During his time, Imran was one of the finest all-rounders, a world-class fast bowler but perhaps it is the cult status he attained due to the leadership that made him stand out from the pack. While he is remembered as the fearless captain, his personal life has also been in the news often. He has had three wives, first being Jemima Goldsmith, second Reham Khan and third being Bushra Manika.

Imran Khan marries Jemima Goldsmith

Imran Khan and Jemima Goldsmith got married in 1995 and have two sons. However, they ended their marriage in 2004 and it was announced that the reason for the divorce is that it was "difficult for Jemima to adapt to the political life of Imran Khan in Pakistan." Congratulating Imran for winning the elections, Jemima on Wednesday said: "22 years later, after humiliations, hurdles and sacrifices, my sons’ father is Pakistan’s next PM. It’s an incredible lesson in tenacity, belief and refusal to accept defeat. The challenge now is to remember why he entered politics in the 1st place. Congratulations."
