It’s the Conservative Party conference this week, where the British Prime Minister’s party gathers to discuss critical issues facing the UK, including the gas shortage crisis, the brutal murder of Sarah Everard by police officer Wayne Couzens, tax hikes, healthcare, and more.
Boris Johnson, 57, is known to be a keen jogger and cyclist. He prepared for the politicking, culminating with his agenda-setting speech later in the week, with a run through the streets of Manchester, northwest England.
Many supporters of Johnson cite his chaotic style and messy hair as a reason for liking him, with those in favor describing him as „eccentric” and „flamboyant” according to YouGov data. Those who had an unfavorable view said he was a „buffoon” and a „clown.”
He didn’t disappoint in the latest photos. The prime minister was sporting Team GB running shorts, formal black leather laced shoes, black dress socks, and a smart white shirt.

It’s not the first time Johnson has been seen in unusual attire. So much so that the Prime Minister was one of the most popular Halloween costumes in 2019.
One of his most memorable outfits was zip-up fleece and skull and crossbones bandana that he donned after losing his position as shadow arts minister in 2004.
The British prime minister also loves a pair of funky Bermuda shorts to exercise in.
