Boris Johnson was spotted wearing an England jersey over his shirt and tie last night, prompting some hilarious reactions on social media.
The prime minister hailed a “fantastic performance” from England as he urged the Three Lions to “bring it home” after they booked their place in the final of Euro 2020.
Harry Kane’s extra-time winner at Wembley secured a 2-1 victory over Denmark for Gareth Southgate’s team, sending England into their first major final since 1966.
Boris Johnson, who was at Wembley with wife Carrie to watch the game, tweeted: “Tonight @England played their hearts out.
“What a fantastic performance from Gareth Southgate’s squad.
“Now to the final. Let’s bring it home”.
But it wasn’t that tweet that grabbed the attention of most people.
After being pictured leaving Downing Street, photos of the PM wearing an England kit over his shirt and tie started to circulate on social media.
Here’s what people had to say:
