Having returned to London from the conference in Manchester on October 5, Mr Johnson received the Italian threat, “La vendetta è un piatto che va mangiato freddo�, by text message in the early hours of Tuesday. It translates as: “Revenge is a dish best eaten cold.�

Mr Boles said, “Boris and I are old friends who have worked closely together for a number of years. Boris is not the only one who can express himself in ornate language. I would also point out that I began this particular message by saying that I was one of his biggest fans.� He added: “I know Boris will be disappointed but you wouldn’t believe how hard it is to get hold of a horse’s head these days.�
