Hailing Britain as a football power and the headstream of modern football, Xi said China should learn from Britain in many aspects.

"Sports exchange is an important part of people-to-people exchanges. I hope the two sides could strengthen their cooperation in sports, including football, to improve people's health and China-Britain friendship," said the president.

Xi is wrapping up his "super" state visit to Britain, the first one for a Chinese top leader in a decade.
