The London Mayor - who met Will Smith at a celebration for Mr Johnson's Leadership Clubs, which offer extracurricular activities for 10 to 14-year-olds - told the Hollywood actor: "My first rap, I haven't really set it to music yet.

Perhaps with your help. I can send you a lyric. It was about the Queen's silver jubilee."

Smith joked: "That was big in the hip-hop community."
