Russian model claims Putin tried to kill her with rat poison

The statement said: "Wiltshire police are not linking the event on Sunday evening to the recent nerve agent poisonings in Salisbury and Amesbury and have made no suggestion that the illness was a result of anything present in our restaurant".

Meanwhile, a Prezzo spokesperson said: "We wish to confirm that the chemical strychnine is not used in Prezzo in Salisbury".

"However, due to the recent events in the south of the county, scientific tests were undertaken to establish if they had come into contact with Novichok".

Roads around the Prezzo restaurant were cordoned off as medics in protective suits investigated the incident Sunday.

Wiltshire police have not commented on whether the incident was a hoax but told ABC News they could not "rule anything in or out" until they spoke to King.

She told the Sun that Alex began to feel ill and she anxious when he wasn't back from the bathroom after 15 minutes.

The article, which has since been removed from the paper's website, ran with the headline, "Putin tried to kill me with rat poison" and declared the incident "Salisbury Attack No. 2".

Inquiries into what caused the man and woman to fall ill are ongoing.

Alex King and Russian-born Anna Shapiro were taken to hospital on Sunday evening after apparently falling ill at an Italian restaurant.

The prankster managed to sneak into an official line-up of celebrities being greeted by Prince Charles at the premiere.

At the time he said it was part of a £100,000 bet with his employer, Edward Davenport - a convicted fraudster.

"Both patients are now medically fit and there is no need for them to be in hospital", said Lorna Wilkinson, director of nursing at Salisbury District Hospital.

In 2004, Mr King pleaded guilty at London's Horseferry Road Magistrates' Court to three counts of distributing indecent photographs or pseudo-photographs of children.

Ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned in March with the deadly nerve agent Novichok, which led to a major operation by the British security forces.

'While this incident did not involve nerve agents, it was still clearly very stressful for our staff who, once again, demonstrated the very best of the NHS'.
