Boris Johnson says he’s as ‘fit as a butcher’s dog’ following near-death Covid-19 scare


BORIS Johnson says he is as “fit as a butcher’s dog” thanks to his workout regime following his Covid-19 scare.

The PM, 56, has been jogging at 6.30am every day with dog Dilyn as well as doing press-ups.

Boris says he is fit despite claims he has been sleeping during the day after fighting for his life in intensive care in April.

And he says he is ready to lead Britain out of the coronavirus crisis and back into good health.

He said: “I’m as fit as a butcher’s dog now.

“The country is going to bounce forward, and I certainly feel full of beans. Never felt better.”

But Boris, whose fiancée Carrie Symonds gave birth to son Wilfred two months ago, took some time to pick up his pace again.

Speaking to the Mail on Sunday, he added: “I would turn around and see my detectives just walking. But I want you to know that I am picking up speed now.

“They have detected in the last few days a notable turn of speed and they are starting to break into a mild trot themselves.”
