Newspaper headlines: Trump visits UK and Liverpool 'paint town red'

Photos of the Liverpool team being greeted by hundreds of thousands of fans in the city after winning the Champions League final appear across several of the front pages.

The Financial Times calls it a "rapturous homecoming", while the Daily Express says the team were given a heroes' welcome as joyful fans painted the town red.

"It's my way or Huawei" is the Sun's front page headline as it predicts a clash between President Trump and Theresa May when he arrives in London.

The paper says Mr Trump has issued a thinly-veiled threat that America could cut intelligence links with the UK if Britain lets the Chinese technology giant invest in its 5G network.

The Daily Mail says two Conservative leadership candidates, Jeremy Hunt and Sajid Javid, have openly questioned Mrs May's plans to consider the firm for a technology infrastructure contract.

Meanwhile, the Daily Mirror criticises the cost of Mr Trump's visit. It says this will be by far the most expensive state visit in British history, costing taxpayers an estimated £40m for security.

It notes the operation to protect the president from thousands of protesters who are set to take to the streets in opposition has raised the total.

The Police Federation says the visit will put enormous strain on an already over-stretched police service.

But the Financial Times rejects the criticism, arguing that Mr Trump deserves his days of pomp and pageantry.

"State visits are designed to honour a country, not an individual," it says, "the clue is in the name".

Bed woes

The Times and the Daily Mail say that Jean-Claude Juncker has complained that as president of the European Commission he does not have a stately home or a personal aircraft.

Mr Juncker is said to be embarrassed that he doesn't have an official residence and has been living in a hotel apartment for the last five years. "I can't talk to official visitors sitting on my bed," he says.

The front page of the Times says Michael Gove has been accused of handing the keys to Number 10 to Jeremy Corbyn by indicating that he would delay Brexit beyond October.

It is thought to be because of his concerns about no-deal, but a rival campaign mockingly says Mr Gove's "great idea" seems to be to continue with Theresa May's failed plan.

The Daily Mail reports that, despite what it calls Brexiteer fury about Mr Gove's stance on no-deal, he appears to be building momentum.

An editorial in the Sun says no-deal is very much an option, and urges "each and every leadership candidate" to make clear how they would prepare for it.

The front runner for the job, Boris Johnson, uses his Daily Telegraph column to set out what the paper calls his first domestic policy proposal.

He writes that he would spend at least £5,000 on every secondary school pupil to try to "level up" the education system, and end a funding gap between London and the rest of the country.

The Daily Telegraph and the Times are among the papers to report that drinking up to 25 cups of coffee a day does not damage the heart.

Scientists from Queen Mary University of London have rejected previous studies suggesting too much caffeine causes arteries to stiffen, leading to heart attacks and strokes.

Their study found that drinking five cups a day, and even up to 25, was no worse than drinking less than a cup a day.
