Could the Labour leader be set to step down?
The hard-line socialist was reported to have told members of his inner circle of a plan to quit before the next general election, expected in June 2020.
But officials insisted the claims of a resignation before the poll were "utterly untrue".
The suggestion follows recent speculation among Labour MPs that Mr Corbyn is hoping a Left-wing successor will emerge to take his place.

The Labour leader is said to regard Rebecca Long Bailey, the shadow chief treasury secretary, as a potential heir.
The MP for Salford and Eccles, who joined the Commons at the last election in 2005, has been a firm supporter of the party leadership.
Speculation about Mr Corbyn's future intensified after a Manchester Evening News journalist with Labour contacts in the North of England reported that “maneuvering" was already underway within the party.
The paper's social affairs editor Jen Williams said on Twitter: “Am told Corbyn has given a departure date to his close circle. Hence the frenzy."

A senior Labour spokesman insisted Mr Corbyn intended to lead the party into the expected 2020 general election.
He said: "The claim about any date or handover is completely untrue.
"He was only elected on a landslide four months or so ago and he quite clearly has the support of a large majority of the party.
"It's quite clear he will continue as leader until the election."
The spokesman also rejected a report that Mr Corbyn took a lieu day off during the week whenever he had to do an TV interview on a Sunday morning political show.
"The idea is completely preposterous," said the spokesman. "He works round the clock on an absolutely punishing schedule."
The spokesman departure date with him, adding: Shadow cabinet member Ian Lavery said: "There's not a grain of truth to the rumours about Jeremy stepping down.
"Lots of gossip happens around this place, but we know from previous rumours that it's not always reliable."
Many Labour MPs fear the party is heading for meltdown at the next election under Mr Corbyn's leadership.

Recent opinion polls have shown levels of support below the 27.6 per cent share of the vote won by Labour under Michael Foot in 1983.
Some Labour MPs also fear that Ukip is eating into their party's support in former heartland territory in the North of England, with concerns that Ukip leader Paul Nuttall could snatch the previously Labour-held seat of Stoke Central in a by-election later this month.
Mr Corbyn faced an attempt by moderate Labour MPs to force him out of his job last year.
A leadership challenge was launched following frustration among pro-EU Labour MPs about Mr Corbyn's unenthusiastic support for remaining in the bloc.
But the attempt to force him out crumbled in the face of mass support for the Left-wing leader among the party's grassroots supporters.
