The Chinese President visited the National Football Museum and watched former Manchester City player and Chinese footballer Sun Jihai being inducted into the hall of fame – the first Chinese national to receive the honor.

Xi visited Manchester Town Hall during his tour of the city, meeting with City Chairman Kahldroon Al Mubarak.
Hundreds of British-based Chinese greeted the president with flags, chanting “We love you President Xi” outside the Town Hall.
Nearby, protestors held banners demanding justice for those persecuted by Chinese authorities and freedom for practitioners of Falun Gong – a prohibited spiritual group which is widely repressed.
