Boris Johnson goes for an early morning swim in the sea ahead of G7 showdown with Macron, Merkel and von der Leyen in Cornwall today

  • The Prime Minister enjoyed a run and then a swim off the Cornish coast today
  • He later met with French President Emmanuel Macron for Brexit divorce talks 
  • Mr Johnson also tweeted to celebrate a plan by G7 to prevent future pandemics

Boris Johnson went for an early morning jog and a swim off the Cornish coast ahead of the second day of the G7 Summit, with leaders set to discuss a declaration aimed at preventing future pandemics.

The Prime Minister rose early to ensure he made the most of the Carbis Bay location by going for a dip in the sea.

And he later acclaimed a “historic” action plan by G7 nations to prevent future pandemics, after Covid-19 wrecked economies and claimed millions of lives around the world.

The collective steps include slashing the time taken to develop and license vaccines, treatments and diagnostics for any future disease to under 100 days, while reinforcing global surveillance networks.

It will be formally published Sunday, alongside the G7’s final communique. 

Mr Johnson tweeted: ‘Under this agreement, the world’s leading democracies will commit to preventing a global pandemic from ever happening again, ensuring the devastation caused by Covid-19 is never repeated.’

The Prime Minister also went for a run today

The PM also met with French President Emmanuel Macron who offered to ‘reset relations’ with Britain as long as Prime Minister Boris Johnson stands by the Brexit divorce deal he signed with the European Union.

Since Britain completed its exit from the EU late last year, relations with the bloc and particularly France have soured, with Macron becoming the most vocal critic of London’s refusal to honour the terms of part of its Brexit deal.

At a meeting at the Group of Seven rich nations in southwestern England, Macron told Johnson the two countries had common interests, but that ties could improve only if Johnson kept his word on Brexit, a source said.

It comes after the world leaders from USA, Japan, Germany, France, Italy and Canada arrived in Cornwall yesterday.

Later the Queen sent G7 leaders into fits of laughter when she quipped ‘are you supposed to look as if you’re enjoying yourself’ while posing for a photograph.
