Not sure if the Italian PM is doing a solo run but reported this afternoon


Italy’s prime minister Mario Draghi has said he wants the final of the European football championships to be held in Rome rather than in London, because of Britain’s rising number of coronavirus infections.

Asked during a news conference in Berlin if he was in favour of the move, Draghi said: “Yes … I will try to stop the final being held in a country where infections are rising quickly

They're all gone mad, these politicians. First Draghi wants the final moved from Wembley and now this

Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto has claimed that plans to light the Allianz Arena in rainbow colours in solidarity with the LGBT community for Wednesday's Euro 2020 game between Hungary and Germany are "harmful and dangerous".

Local authorities in Munich asked UEFA for permission to light the stadium's translucent cover in rainbow colours in "a visible sign of solidarity with the LGBTI community in Hungary".

Viktor Orban's right-wing Hungarian government last week passed a law banning the "promotion" of homosexuality to minors.

"It is extremely harmful and dangerous to mix sports and politics," Mr Szijjarto told MTI news agency.

"Historical experience shows that this is bad, and if anyone, the Germans certainly know this well.

"We in Hungary have passed a law to protect Hungarian children, and they are now fighting against it in Western Europe.

"The (lighting) clearly shows the intention to bring politics into the world of sport, because everyone knows what it is about."

Yesterday, UEFA said it was opening an investigation into an allegedly homophobic banner and monkey noises at Hungary's first two Euro 2020 matches in Budapest.

UEFA apparently don't allow Munich to light the Allianz Arena in rainbow colours. Imo the city should just do it nontheless and pay the penalty with a smile. Would debunk the hyporcrisy of UEFA, would support _all_ minorities in Hungary, Europe and all over the world and also would be a marketing for the city itself.
