Footage has emerged of Theresa May playing pool with Italian prime minister Giuseppe Conte.

“I’ll have a lot of support but I’ll be hopeless,” she says as he hands her a cue.

“You’ll have to show me how.”

Mr Conte briefly explains to the prime minister how to play.

Gavin Barwell, her chief of staff, then shows her how to use her hand as a bridge and how to hold the cue.

Ms May can be seen leaning over the table and lining up the angle of her shot.

The video cuts out just after she hits the cue ball.

Mr Conte shared the one-minute clip on his Twitter account.

Ms May was attending an EU-League of Arab States summit in Egypt.

Earlier on Sunday, Ms May ruled out the possibility of putting a new Brexit deal to a vote in the House of Commons next week.

She insisted one would be held by 12 March – just 17 days before the UK leaves the bloc.
