"On the advice of his doctor, the Prime Minister has tonight been admitted to hospital for tests," a Downing Street spokeswoman said.

"This is a precautionary step, as the Prime Minister continues to have persistent symptoms of coronavirus 10 days after testing positive for the virus."

Johnson would stay in charge of the government during tests and was in contact with his cabinet, according to the Downing Street statement.
