British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is resting after undergoing nose surgery, Sky News quoted Downing Street as saying.
Until Tuesday when the PM will resume office, Deputy PM Dominic Raab will take significant decisions, if any.
Johnson’s spokesperson reported that the PM was admitted to the hospital in London around 6am for routine sinus-related procedures.
By 10am, he was back in Downing Street. Reportedly, the operation had been “scheduled for a while”.
Raab had previously stood in for the PM when he was unwell during the pandemic.
He later said in a conference that he was afraid Johnson could have died.
