Prime Minister Boris Johnson's adviser Dominic Cummings, 48, decided to take advantage of the scorching weather on Saturday, leaving his house in quite an unusual look.
Cummings was seen wearing a white shirt, black Hugo Boss jogging pants, and blue Nike trainers, while the whole appearance was topped off with a straw hat and a large wooden stick that the official used for walking.
