'Hazardous duel', 'Laughable Mr Corbyn': UK papers react to 'bruising' live TV debate
A YouGov poll immediately after the Brexit vote saw a narrow win for Johnson in the ITV debate.

THE PAPERS IN the UK today are led by reaction to the televised verbal tussle between Prime Minister Boris Johnson and opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn.

The i newspaper says the debate saw “insults fly” while the Financial Times says Johnson survived a “hazardous duel” with Corbyn, according to a snap YouGov poll also covered by The Times which showed a narrow win for the PM.

The Daily Mail characterises Corbyn’s performance as “laughable”, The Guardian reports the debate saw the pair “stake their ground”, and the Daily Express says the opposition leader avoided a question on Brexit nine times.
