US President Donald Trump was quick to respond to the news and wrote on Twitter: “Great News: Prime Minister Boris Johnson has just been moved out of Intensive Care. Get well Boris!!!” Earlier this week the President referred to Mr Johnson as his “good friend”, as he responded to the news the Prime Minister had been moved to intensive care.
On Thursday evening Downing Street announced Mr Johnson’s condition was improving and that he was moved out of intensive care.
A spokesman said: “The Prime Minister has been moved this evening from intensive care back to the ward, where he will receive close monitoring during the early phase of his recovery.”
