As Boris Johnson prepares to step down as Mayor of London we take a look back at some of his finer photocalls.

Born in New York in 1964, Johnson went to school in Camden, Brussels, and Sussex before attending Eton College in Berkshire, where he went on a scholarship.

He has held the position of Mayor of London since 2008 - and has racked up quite a few hilarious photocalls in that time.
