It's not clear how or where Boris contracted COVID-19, but the prime minister was present at Prime Minister's Questions just two days ago, on Wednesday - although members were sat spaced apart.

He also joined the nation in standing outside to clap for the NHS yesterday evening. The prime minister could be seen outside Number 10, joining Chancellor Rishi Sunak - although the pair were stood at a distance from one another.

We're wishing the PM a speedy recovery.
