A number of Saturday's front pages reflect on the US presidential TV debate including the Daily Telegraph which says Joe Biden is facing calls from Democrat strategists, donors and politicians to suspend his campaign and make way for a younger candidate, at the party's convention in August.

The Guardian calls President Biden's debate performance "a 90 minute horror show" and on its front page describes his showing as "shaky".

"Sleepy" Biden was savaged by Donald Trump, according to the Daily Star which also echoes calls for the president being urged to step down.

Switching to British politics and the polling day run in - Tory Cabinet Minister Kemi Badenoch speaks to the Times where she fiercely criticises Reform candidates and goes on to say the Reform leader, Nigel Farage, is in politics for the "limelight".

Former Prime Minister, Boris Johnson makes what the Daily Mail calls his biggest intervention in the election campaign. He urges voters to support the Conservatives, writing, "it is by no means too late to tilt the steering wheel in the direction of common sense, avert Starmergeddon, and prevent the country from going in completely the wrong direction."

Finally, the Daily Mirror leads with Jay Slater's best friend who says he heard the missing teenager "slipping on rocks" in final phone conversation earlier this month.
