Visiting Chinese President Xi Jinping, a well known football fan, on Friday called for more exchange and cooperation between China and Britain on football as well as other sports.

Accompanied by British Prime Minister David Cameron, Xi visited the Manchester City Football Academy, which is sponsored by the Manchester City Football Club, champion of the Barclay Premier League in 2013-2014 season.

Xi and Cameron enjoyed an exhibition from the Manchester-based National Football Museum in which major historical artifacts, including the first World Cup ball, were on display, according to the official website of the club.

Compared with other sports activities, football spreads in a wider range. Garnering the largest fan number, football has broad influence and is deeply loved by people all over the world, said Xi.
