BREAKING: Boris Johnson in hospital: No10 says PM had ‘routine’ surgery on a sinus problem under general anesthetic this morning

Boris Johnson has undergone surgery on a sinus problem this morning, No10 has revealed.

The Prime Minister had a ‘minor’ operation under general anaesthetic at an unspecified London NHS hospital early today and is now resting in Downing Street, his spokesman said.

He left home at 6am and was back in Westminster by 10am without using an ambulance after the procedure, which had been scheduled some time in advance.

It would be the first time the PM has been in hospital since he suffered from Covid in the spring of 2020, and his spokesman said they two were not related.

He told reporters today: ‘The PM had a minor routine operation related to his sinuses. ‘He will be resting this morning and I will update this afternoon.’

Significant decisions will be deferred to the Deputy Prime minister Dominic Raab for the next 24 hours, he added.

On Saturday Mr Johnson made a second surprise visit to Ukraine, a day after Emmanuel Macron and EU leaders visited the capital for the first time.

The Prime Minister was pictured in a warm embrace with President Zelensky, who greeted him by his first name in Kyiv.

After viewing a graveyard of Russian military vehicles, Mr Johnson pledged more UK military assistance, including training for more than 120,000 troops, that aims to expel Russian forces from the war-torn nation.

Speaking at a joint news conference he said that would be the point at which talks on Ukraine’s future could begin.

‘We will continue, as we have from the beginning, to provide the military equipment you need – and now, of course, the training that may be necessary to go with that new equipment – so that you, the Ukrainian people, the Ukrainian armed forces, will be able to do what I believe Ukrainians yearn to do, and that is to expel the aggressor from Ukraine,’ he said.

‘That will be the moment for talks about the future of Ukraine and it will be in that context of a free Ukraine that we and other countries will be making the security commitments and guarantees we have discussed so often.’
