Boris Johnson does not nap at work, says No 10 aide

It’s official: Boris Johnson has not been napping on the job. It might be understandable for someone who has been recovering from Covid hospitalisation with a nine-month old baby to want to grab 40 winks occasionally. But according to Number 10’s press secretary, it simply doesn’t happen.

Allegra Stratton said there is simply no space for a siesta as Boris Johnson’s day is jam-packed. The story was awoken by The Times newspaper and Downing Street is clearly concerned about it denting the PM’s popularity.
