British Prime Minister David Cameron traveled to China as part of a political/athletic trip to increase cooperation between the UK and China. Cameron, however, did not opt to play ping pong with the Chinese representatives, but instead soccer.
Soccer–football for everyone not in the US–is a decidedly British sport, but considering the push London made for table tennis in the last Olympics (and after), we would have expected to see the Chinese try and get Cameron on the table. It seems that Cameron and his Chinese hosts, were unimpressed by the last time the British political figure played table tennis (that time with President Obama).
