Rishi Sunak's wife Akshata Murty always looks beautifully put together, with flawless outfits every time she steps out, and it turns out she works hard to look after her physique.

Following King Charles' coronation, Akshata was spotted attending a spin class at Soul Cycle with Joe Biden's wife, Jill Biden.

The political duo visited Soul Cycle's Notting Hill studio for their 9:30 AM hour-long soul survivor class taught by Abbey Ashley, an instructor known to play Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift in her sessions.

Soul Cycle sessions see attendees perform push-ups, sprints and weights sessions, toning the whole body, with the classes often offering run themes – Jill and Kamala Harris' husband Doug Emhoff attended a Lizzo Vs Harry Styles class, for example.

Akshata, 43, reportedly often visits with Rishi too, who is known to be a fan of spinning at the boutique studio. Classes at Soul Cycle cost £24, and people tend to do three classes a week, totting up to £288 per month spent on her hobby.

While it seems steep, money isn't much of an issue, as the PM's wife is reportedly worth £200 million, and is a billionaire heiress , so a few hundred pounds per month spent on exercise likely doesn't dent her bank account too much.

Their grand weekend home is located within the village of Kirby Sigston, which is near to Northallerton. It is believed to be set on a 12-acre plot of land, so it is likely that it boasts incredible panoramic views for the family to enjoy.

She developed the business plan for Akshata while earning her MBA, and the now defunct brand discovered artists in remote villages in India and Akshata worked with them and their designs to create her own clothing.
