Though “Rishi Sunak” and “Hardest Geezer” are not words one might expect to find together in a sentence, the Prime Minister today took time out of his busy schedule to go on a jog with the man who’s just run the length of Africa. Russ Cook, known online as “Hardest Geezer”, completed his challenge earlier this month, covering 16,000 km and 16 countries over 352 days, in the process raising more than £1 million for charity.

This morning’s jog with Sunak around Westminster looked more sedate, but the Prime Minister still found time to discuss how he took up running to impress his future wife and how national security is the issue which causes him the most stress. Travelling the length of Africa on foot is a Herculean task, but surely more manageable than avoiding a Labour general election victory.
