John Prescott's description of Boris Johnson is absolutely perfect

Boris Johnson will be leaving his post as Mayor of London after eight years after Thursday's election.

It's just as well, since he's also an MP, is the face of the Brexit campaign, and is trying to get his leadership bid strategy in order.

According to an Opinium poll, Labour's Sadiq Khan is set to win this week with a nine point lead over Tory candidate Zac Goldsmith just two days before polling stations open.

The Evening Standard has asked several leading Londoners from different industries, sectors and political affiliations what they'll remember BoJo for.

On the Labour side of things, former mayor Ken Livingstone bemoaned the "real tragedy" of London's air pollution under Johnson's tenure, and Alistair Campbell called him a "a Mayor for Boris not a Mayor for London":

But it was John Prescott's pithy take that had us giggling:

Prescott out.
