Please check the bottom of this page for the code needed to add “display=swap” to the google fonts URL:
Thank you Tom, apologies for not looking through the documentation first.
I did have a thorough look through the settings options but could not find anything.

No problem – I added it after you asked 🙂
Just one more question (apologies as I have only just had a chance to test this fully), I have added the snippet to my functions.php but when running a Google page speed test and looking at the Desktop results I can see the font files for the Google font sourcesanpro are triggering an opportunity. I think this is because the font does not have font-display: swap in the css like the Google Example:
src: local('Pacifico Regular'), local('Pacifico-Regular'), url(https://fonts.gstatic.com/s/pacifico/v12/FwZY7-Qmy14u9lezJ-6H6MmBp0u-.woff2) format('woff2');
Might it be possible to add this to all the font variations? This would at least improve things from that perspective.
I hope I am not being picky but I am trying to prepare the site as best as I can for the up and coming changes where Google will use core web vitals as a ranking factor.
