Former London Mayor Boris Johnson threw his support behind Andrea Leadsom in the race to be Britain's next prime minister amid the tumultuous aftermath of Britain's decision to leave the European Union.Johnson, one of the most prominent figures in the 'leave' campaign, said Leadsom has the "zap, drive and determination" to lead the country.Three major political figures – Cameron, Johnson and U.K. Independence Party leader Nigel Farage – have stepped aside rather than weather the political uncertainty of leadership and negotiation with the remaining 27 nations in the trading bloc.The pound was down 0.9 percent to $1.3166 on Tuesday, its lowest since the vote and the weakest in 31 years.
