British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is raring to return to work on Monday, especially to take control of the coronavirus crisis.
Johnson has been recovering at his countryside retreat in Chequers after being discharged from hospital earlier this month.
The Telegraph reported that Johnson has told his aides to set up meetings with cabinet ministers next week to get him up to speed.
A source told the newspaper: ‘He’s not the sort of person who is very good at doing nothing. In truth he has been working pretty much full time for the past week.
‘The fact that he had a telephone audience with the Queen on Wednesday night shows you that he considers himself to be fit for duty.’
Dominic Raab, the Foreign Secretary has been in charge of the Government since Mr Johnson was admitted to hospital at the start of the month.
The Prime Minister’s official spokesman told reporters last night: ‘The Prime minister spoke with the First Secretary of State yesterday and he had an audience with Her Majesty the Queen by telephone last night.
