"To use that American expression, he almost took one for the team," Stanley Johnson said. He went on to say that while the prime minister is "not out of the woods yet," his son's diagnosing and hospitalization served an amazing purpose... in a sense, it got the whole country to realize this is a serious event."

The prime minister is in "extremely good spirits," according to Downing Street.
