WATCH: Kenyan president labels UK's Boris Johnson 'the bicycle guy'

Former British foreign secretary Boris Johnson has been labelled "the bicycle guy" as Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta struggled to recall his name.

Kenyatta referred to Johnson during Prime Minister Theresa May's visit to the east African country.

May is on a tour of several African countries with the intention of securing trade deals after Brexit.

"As last year, if you recall, the foreign secretary then, Boris... Boris Boris - Johnson. The bicycle guy. That one," Kenyatta said.

It was not immediately clear if May approved of the title.
