Damian arrives at Downing Street in central London for a reception hosted by Prime Minister Theresa May for teams, ambassadors and volunteers of Unicef Soccer Aid ahead of the charity football match at Manchester’s Old Trafford on Sunday. The British government is supporting the Unicef fundraiser by matching donations up to a total of £5 million as part of the UK Aid Match programme.
No surprise, as we reported yesterday, that Damian would attend the 2018 UEFA Champions League final today, Saturday, May 26, 2018 at NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Kiev, Ukraine in support of his favorite football team, Liverpool, in the LFC vs. Real Madrid match. Damian posted this video to Twitter as he boarded the plane headed to Kyiv.
Damian has been a longtime fan of LFC since childhood – he took part in the coverage at Anfield for the first leg of Liverpool’s Champions League tie with Manchester City on April 4 and last year he celebrated his 46th birthday at Anfield for Liverpool’s visit of Tottenham.
An avid Reds supporter, Damian (pictured with Clive Owen above) made the epic journey to Kyiv in the hope of being witness to a historic battle to take the UEFA Champions League trophy for the sixth time. But it wasn’t meant to be. Although his Redmen lost to Real Madrid 3-1 and no doubt he was gutted, Damian showed resilience in defeat by offering sportsmanship for his team and fans abroad.

Liverpool face Real Madrid in the 2018 UEFA Champions League final on Saturday, May 26 at NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Kiev, Ukraine as the club football season draws to a close. The two European heavyweights last met in UEFA’s showpiece event in 1981, at the Parc des Princes in Paris. Five-time winners Liverpool will be aiming to repeat that triumph! Here is a little MOM “We’ve got Salah” Reds chant by Damian himself as he heads to the title match:
Off to Kiev tomorrow with @LFC. Milner keeps Ronaldo silent for 90 mins and gets MOM. And Liverpool win 6th title. Inshalla Mo Salah…!! pic.twitter.com/ne00z1SpVW

It didn’t take long for Damian to get back into the swing of it as he played the BMW PGA Celebrity Pro-AM golf competition at Wentworth Club in Virginia Water, Surrey, United Kingdom today, Wednesday, May 23. Teeing off at 1:15 pm, Damian returned to the West Course with golf professional “The Great Dane” Thomas Bjorn, along with lead singer and guitarist for the British pop/rock band The Vamps, Bradley Simpson and Italian-British actor Luke Pasqualino.
Damian received some useful golfing tips from Sky Sports presenter Nick Dougherty before he teed off. Dougherty analyzed his swing as he took his driver out on the range and suggested a few improvements before he headed to the course. You can watch that video here if it’s authorized in your viewing area. And guess who made SkySports FanVan? You can see Damian in this video at 2:46 in.
