British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was pictured on the front page of the Mail on Sunday, doing a spontaneous set of push-ups to prove that he has recovered from Covid-19.

“I’m as fit as a butcher’s dog now. Do you want me to do some press-ups to show you how fit I am?” Johnson said during the interview, before dropping to the floor to do some push-ups.
