"The PM has been discharged from hospital to continue his recovery, at Chequers," a Downing Street spokesman said, referring to the prime minister's country estate outside London.

"On the advice of his medical team, the PM will not be immediately returning to work."

Johnson said Britain "will defeat" coronavirus, in a video message released by Downing Street as he left hospital following intensive care treatment for the disease.

"We will defeat this coronavirus and defeat it together," the 55-year-old leader said, seated and dressed in a suit and tie.

"Though the struggle is by no means over, we are now making progress in this incredible national battle."
