UK Prime Minister Theresa May played football with children during her visit to Maidenhead. The video was posted on her official Twitter account.
May arrived in Maidenhead and visited a local women's football team. The politician called the past week historic for English football. She stressed that Liverpool, Arsenal and other football clubs "inspire children, adults and Prime Ministers".
In the Champions League final, two English clubs will play — Liverpool and Tottenham. Two more teams from the UK — Chelsea and Arsenal — will compete for victory in the Europa League. Four representatives of one country will play in the final matches for the first time in the history of the main European Cups.

The footage went viral, with Twitter users cracking jokes or criticising the prime minister as the country's fate has been in limbo over the Brexit deal.
