David Cameron is reportedly recovering today after being stung by a jellyfish as he relaxed on a luxury holiday on the Spanish island of Lanzarote.
According to reports the Prime Minister ignored warnings from locals after they spotted a number of the stinging marine animals at the island's Arrieta beach.
The Daily Mirror reported that tourists saw him suddenly run from the water rubbing his arm and yelling: “Ouch! Ouch! Ouch!"
Tourists told the newspaper that Mr Cameron came running out of the water immediately in his blue swimming trunks and rubbing his arm.
Local ex-pat Wendy, 59, told the newspaper that one of her friends warned Mr Cameron the sea was full of jellyfish.
"Everyone got out of the water and his kids walked back with their minders around the pier," she said.
"But then he decided to get back in then suddenly came out shouting in pain after getting stung."
One Briton on Lanzarote remarked that the traditional cure for a jellyfish sting is to urinate on it. But a Downing Street source told the paper that the sting had not required treatment.
