The statue of Britain’s war-time hero was taken out of the White House office by Barack Obama in favour of a sculpture of Martin Luther King in 2009.

The move by Obama has fractured relations between the US and Britain, with Boris Johnson arguing the move was a “snub to Britain” and suggested it was due to the 55-year-old’s “ancestral dislike” of the UK.

However the President-elect – whose mother was Scottish – is keen to usher in a new period of emboldened relations between the US and the UK and formally announced the sculpture of the iconic World War Two hero would be returned to the Oval Office.

When asked by the New York Times if he was going to bring back the bust of Britain’s esteemed Tory hero, replied “I am, indeed, I am”.
