Is Boris "The Man Who Delivered Brexit"?

"When you go and meet EU leaders, what sort of welcome is afforded to you?" asked Nick.

"They're genuinely extremely friendly," started Boris, before reflecting on how the initial reaction after the EU referendum vote was slightly less warm.

"When the whole thing began, when I was appointed Foreign Secretary nine months ago, I walked into the room and they thought: 'Oh my God, it's the guy who delivered Brexit'.

"They know now that this is a chance not to have a divorce, not a dissolution, but a resolution of the problem with the UK.

"Always self-effacing, aren't you?" joked Nick. "The man who delivered Brexit - that's how you just described yourself...your words not mine!"

Boris was quick to clarify that those were actually the words of "my friend" Witold Waszczykowski, the Polish Foreign Minister.

"Of course he's not right but that is alas how they see it."
