Chillaxing David Cameron snubbed a phone call from US president Barack Obama to finish a game of tennis, according to Rebekah Brooks’ husband. Cameron’s Old Etonian friend Charlie Brooks told the Racing Post:
“We’re pretty good friends. I played tennis with him at Chequers one day. I won the first set easily, then he won the second set, and then someone came up to him and said ‘Er… Mr Obama is on the phone for you, Prime Minister.’ He said: ‘I think we’ve got time for a third set – tell Mr Obama I’ll ring him back.’ He obviously thought he had me on the ropes, and I beat him two sets to one.”
It will likely be court appearances of a different kind which will preoccupy the Brooks household from now on.
