Speaking at the proposed site of the Eden Project in Dundee, Yousaf told The National he would continue to fight the campaign “right to the very end”.

He said: “I think you’ve always got to make sure you are campaigning right to the very end. I’ve been taught that since my first day in the SNP. You never, ever stop.

“You never stop until the ballot’s closed so this is not actually the last day, I’ll keep going and keep speaking to undecided voters right until ballots close on Monday.”

A winner is due to be announced on Monday afternoon – though a precise time is not yet known.
