David Cameron and Angela Merkel will take a break from discussing wars and fiscal crises at a G8 summit on Saturday to watch the Champions League final between Bayern Munich and Chelsea.
The British and German leaders will take use of a theater at President Barack Obama's Camp David retreat to watch the keenly awaited football final, a US official confirmed.

At a G8 summit in Canada two years ago the leaders watched Germany thump England 4-1 in a World Cup match in South Africa.
