BORIS Johnson has hailed telly fitness coach Joe Wicks as he battles to lose weight and tone up.
BoJo, who runs daily with his dog Dilyn, urged Brits to join him in his health crusade.
He praised “amazing trainers” such as ‘The Body Coach’ Joe whose lockdown YouTube videos helped whip the nation into shape.
Mr Johnson was 16½ stone and “way overweight” when admitted to ICU with coronavirus.
It is more dangerous for fat and obese people.
In a Twitter video to plug his obesity crackdown, he said he had suffered with yo-yoing weight for years and wanted to slim — and since recovering had been “steadily building up my fitness”.
As part of his bid to get the nation fit, the Prime Minister will today announce a £2billion “cycling and walking revolution”.
It will see thousands of miles of new bike lanes and cycle training schemes.
GPs, who can already put the overweight on Weight Watchers courses, will be able to prescribe cycling classes for tubby patients.

The PM said: “To build a healthier, more active nation, we need the right infrastructure, training and support in place.”
