Liverpool's triumph over Spurs in the Champions League final features prominently on the front and back pages of Sunday's newspapers.

The Sunday Telegraph and the Mail on Sunday both refer to the club's sixth European champions title with the headline: "Joy of six!"

The Express speaks of the Liverpool boss, Jürgen Klopp, being in "seventh heaven", after losing his previous six finals as a manager.

In the Sunday Times, Donald Trump says Britain would do well to send Nigel Farage to negotiate with Brussels, and to pursue a no-deal Brexit if the EU does not give the UK what it wants.

The president suggests the next prime minister should refuse to pay the £39bn Brexit divorce bill and "walk away" if Brussels does not bow to British demands.

He also suggests it is not too late to follow his previous advice to "sue" the EU - to give Britain greater "ammunition" at the negotiating table.

On Mr Farage, Mr Trump says he likes the Brexit Party leader "a lot", describing him as a "very smart person".

Writing in the Observer, Labour Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, compares the language used by Mr Trump to rally his supporters to that of "the fascists of the 20th century".

Mr Khan condemns the "red carpet treatment" being afforded to the president during his three-day stay, describing Mr Trump as an example of a growing global threat from the far right to "hard-won rights and freedoms".

According to the online Independent, a protest against the state visit planned for central London on Tuesday could become one of the biggest demonstrations in British history.

Coaches are reported to have been booked to bring in tens of thousands of people from at least fifteen cities around the country.

Under a headline: "I will smash system just like Trump", the Sunday Express leads with what it calls a defiant message from Mr Farage ahead of Thursday's by-election in Peterborough.

The Brexit Party leader is said to believe he can win the next general election by breaking the grip on power shared by the Conservatives and Labour.

On the last weekend before Theresa May stands aside as Conservative leader, attention is devoted to the contest to succeed her.

The Sunday Telegraph says Michael Gove has told Cabinet colleagues he is prepared to delay Brexit until late next year, rather than leave the EU without a deal at the end of October.

The environment secretary is said to have warned that a no-deal exit this autumn risks triggering a general election that would put Jeremy Corbyn in Downing Street.

The paper notes Mr Gove's position puts him at odds with other Brexiteer candidates for the leadership, including Boris Johnson.

Both the Sunday Telegraph and the Mail on Sunday report Amber Rudd, the Work and Pensions Secretary, and other "one nation" Tories are considering giving their support to Mr Gove after talks with Mr Johnson stalled over his backing of a no-deal.

One minister is quoted as telling the Sunday Telegraph Mr Gove would become the "compromise candidate" - because he was "capable and clear-eyed about the choices open to us".

According to the Mail on Sunday, Mr Gove has won the backing of his fellow former education secretary, Nicky Morgan.

But, writing in the same paper, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Liz Truss - who contemplated running herself - says she is backing Boris Johnson.

She argues that, in a large field of candidates, only he has the "oomph" to take Britain out of the EU by October - and "unleash" its "talent".

Away from the Brexit issue, another Tory leadership contender - the Home Secretary, Sajid Javid - tells the Daily Telegraph he is ready to consider scrapping the top rate of income tax - to inject more "dynamism" into the economy.

And the Mail on Sunday's main story is what it calls a "chilling warning" from Security Minister Ben Wallace.

In an interview with the paper, he speaks of MI5's spy network being stretched to breaking point by a barrage of new deadly threats.

Mr Wallace says a combination of Russian aggression, Islamic extremism, neo-Nazi terrorism and organised crime have made the world a "very much more dangerous place" than when he took on the job three years ago.

He says MI5 are currently running nearly 600 active operations and need more resources.
