Donald Tusk launched a scathing attack on Donald Trump and Boris Johnson as world leaders arrived in France for the G7 summit.

The European Council president warned Mr Johnson could go down in history as "Mr No Deal" before the prime minister had even touched down.

But speaking on the plane to Biarritz, Mr Johnson retaliated by suggesting a failure to reach a Brexit agreement would also reflect badly on Mr Tusk.

The prime minister is preparing for his first international summit and meeting with US president Donald Trump since he entered Downing Street.

Ahead of the summit, which continues until Monday, Mr Johnson warned his Brexit critics they were “gravely mistaken” about the UK losing its place on the world stage.
