Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer fantasised about facing up to Prime Minister Boris Johnson across the despatch box wearing boxing gloves as he let loose on a punchbag in Hull.

Sir Keir donned pristine red gloves sporting the logo “vote Labour” as he was shown the ropes at the Vulcan Boxing Club in the city on Friday morning.

The leader of the Opposition took off his jacket and began giving a red punchbag everything he had, joking: “I’m going to be wearing these at Prime Minister’s Question Time.”

And, as he aimed more heavy blows at the bag, he shouted: “My next question….and finally….”

He said: “One day, I’ve got to do it.”

The Labour leader laughed, suggesting: “The last question is from Seb. Fantastic.”

Mr Glazer suggested Sir Keir watch professional Hull cruiserweight Sonny Taylor take aim at another bag.

The politician, still wearing his white shirt and suit trousers, said he was “similar”.

Sir Keir toured the Vulcan Centre, which he heard had become a beacon for the community during the pandemic – offering sporting activities, training and one of the largest food banks in Hull.
