Theresa May has had a rough couple of days.
The Prime Minister lost the Conservative Party’s majority in the most recent election, there’s rumblings of dissent over a future partnership with the DUP, and all of her old enemies are crawling out the woodwork saying she’ll be out of a job soon.
It’s all been a bit stressful for Theresa; so when the chance came to chill out and watch the football in Paris with French PM Emmanuel Macron, we imagine she leapt at the chance.
A bit of football, away from London and the stress of Westminster. What could possibly go wrong?
This. This could go wrong.
Yes, that’s Theresa May doing a Mexican Wave as it goes round the Stade Francis.
Badly. Very very badly. Two seconds too late badly.
Needless to say, it went down pretty well on social media….
Theresa May also put more effort into that Mexican wave than she did for her entire election campaign #FRAENG— ㅤ (@ProudieYT) June 13, 2017
Everyone had jokes.
Theresa May does the Mexican wave - odds on she's got a half and half scarf too #FRAENG— Olaf Falafel (@OFalafel) June 13, 2017
Theresa May's Mexican wave about as convincing as her manifesto.— Andrew Raeburn (@andrew_raeburn) June 13, 2017
Forget the fact England lost 3-2 to a young French side that already look like champions in waiting, it was the Mexican Wave that everyone was talking about.
Best thing about Theresa May doing a Mexican wave tonight is the fact Donald Trump might get mixed up & build a wall around her.— Sid (@sidneymufc) June 13, 2017
It gets even better when you see the photo of the Prime Minister mid-wave.
theresa may, misjudging a mexican wave just like she misjudged public opinion when she called the general election pic.twitter.com/0NS2xG4LWl— aisha. (@avocadamn) June 13, 2017
Especially when you zoom in on the background characters...

Less than three seconds of footage, and so much to enjoy...
Harry Kane now has 10 goals in five games, but we all care about the Mexican wave

Don't blame it on the moonlight
Don't blame it on the good times
Blame it on the Brexit. pic.twitter.com/jjWOjCx4s8
A few people even pointed out how a certain other politician is a massive football fan...

And of course there was the wheat field stuff.

Our favourite joke? Got to be Labour MP David Lammy's...
