After clocking Grigg (and his eggs), Boris unexpectedly took the socialist approach to defusing the situation: “There’s a young man here who had eggs he was going to throw at me, can you believe it? There are people hungry in this country, my friend. Don’t waste those eggs.”

Grigg later revealed that he brought the eggs to the rally as an act of protest - but that he didn’t actually intend to throw them.

“No, I was not going to throw an egg. The egg was just to mess with them. The egg was to cause a scene,” he said.

Right.

We're not sure we fully believe Grigg.

Denying that he was going to lob the egg at Boris wasn't all he had to say about the matter, though. 

Apparently, he wasn't at the rally to protest against Brexit at all - in fact, it was a direct protest against the Conservative Party. 

He said: “Today was a protest against the Conservative Party, it wasn’t to do with Vote Leave or the EU.”

Grigg left with one egg still in his pocket, presumably in case he ran into Boris on the way home. 

He probably didn't run into him again, though - because Boris spent the rest of the day doing doughnuts in a £200,000 sportscar... as you do.
