Boris Johnson’s grand "mummy"

Scientists in the Swiss city of Basel have solved a forty-year-old mystery over the identity of a mummified woman who died in 1787. Thanks to DNA testing they discovered that this corpse found buried in a church in 1975 was the great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandmother of… UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson! The British politician revealed he was very proud to be descended from this ancient mummified Swiss woman who died of syphilis. "Very excited to hear about my late great grand 'mummy' - a pioneer in sexual health care. Very proud," he joked on Twitter.
