Boris Johnson admitted to hospital for coronavirus tests

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been admitted to hospital for coronavirus tests, Downing Street has said.

The PM tested positive for the virus 10 days ago and has been in self-isolation ever since - but his symptoms have continued to "persist".

Number 10 said Mr Johnson was taken to hospital as a “precautionary step” on the advice of his doctor.

Good Morning Britain presenters Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid showed their support with their tweets below.
