Local darts legend Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor has clapped for the Boris Johnson this evening – as the Prime Minister remains in hospital with coronavirus.
In the tweet this evening the 16-time World Champion published a video of himself stood on his doorstep and applauding the Prime Minister following calls to Clap for Boris after the Prime Minister was moved to intensive care in a hospital in London.
Speaking in the clip Mr Taylor said: “Come on Boris. I haven’t got the power. You have. Come on Boris. Come on pal.”
Many people tweeted to support the Power’s gesture.
However, as is often the case with social media, others were more critical of the video.
Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, who is deputising for Mr Johnson as First Secretary of State, said this afternoon that the Prime Minister remain in good spirits.
“He’s receiving the very best care from the excellent medical team at St Thomas’s Hospital. He remained stable overnight,” Mr Raab told the daily Downing Street press conference.
“He’s receiving standard oxygen treatment and breathing without any assistance, he’s not required any mechanical ventilation or non-invasive respiratory support.
“He remains in good spirits and in keeping with usual clinical practise his progress continues to be monitored closely in critical care.”
