Donald Trump (74) has Covid. There was always an inevitability about this diagnosis. No mask-wearing. All those rallies. The swaggering assertion that he was the most tested (testing?) man in America.

But then, when it happens, it's still a bit of a shocker. Trump's time in office, surely the most outlandish in White House history, now features another dramatic twist in the mouth of an historic election.

He has tweeted to assure the world that he and Melania, who also has tested positive, are bearing up and will get through this TOGETHER!
