13 favourite things people said about Boris Johnson posing with an England shirt outside Downing Street
As you might just be aware, England play Denmark in the Euros semi-finals on Wednesday with the chance of reaching their first major tournament final since 1966.
Boris Johnson is no stranger to strapping himself to the England bandwagon – remember when he stood on that giant England flag before England’s win against Ukraine?
Well now he’s taken time out from his busy schedule to pose with an England shirt outside 10 Downing Street.
Today is the day.

You have peddled racism your whole life. You attacked our team for taking the knee.
You have absolutely no right to lay claim to the shirt number of our talisman, Raheem Sterling – someone who has overcome racism and leads by example every day
