The video is seven years old when Boris Johnson was Mayor of London. In the video, which has re-surfed online, Johnson is seen using his bicycle to visit Milad Supermarket for shopping.

Old Video of 'Mayor' Boris Johnson at Milad Supermarket:
Last year, the video of Johnson visiting Milad Supermarket and using bicycle went viral with people falsely claiming that he had violated coronavirus-induced restrictions. Another fake claim attributed to the old video was that he had contracted coronavirus after visiting the supermarket. Last year, on March 27, it was announced that Johnson had tested positive for COVID-19 and was subsequently hospitalised.
Johnson was discharged on April 12. As mentioned earlier, some people also shared the video recently saying this highlighted humble lifestyle of UK Prime Minister. However, they failed to realised that the video is old.
