Boris Johnson returns to No 10 after minor sinus operation

Baku, June 21, AZERTAC

Boris Johnson had a "minor routine operation related to his sinuses" under general anaesthetic at a London hospital on Monday morning, according to BBC.

The prime minister had the operation at 06:00 BST and was back in Downing Street at 10:00.

A Downing Street spokesman said Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab would make any urgent decisions in his place.

And he said Mr Johnson was feeling well, and was due to take meetings on Monday afternoon.

It is understood Mr Raab remains on hand to assist with any major decisions, but Mr Johnson is expected to chair a meeting of his senior ministers on Tuesday morning and travel to a gathering of Commonwealth leaders later this week.
