Theresa May has officially stepped down as Prime Minister.

And after spending three years doing one of the toughest jobs in the world, especially when it comes to the current political climate (no-one needs to hear the two B-words being thrown about anymore), it’s no surprise that as soon as her successor had taken over she was off and out and ready to let her hair down.

So following her final day as Prime Minister you may have expected her to bundle up on the sofa for a duvet day with popcorn and Netflix, but the now-former PM decided to take things another way and get out of the house to participate in one of her favourite hobbies.

The ex-Conservative party leader was spotted out and about watching a cricket match at Lords cricket ground.

Mrs May was joined by chairman of the ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board) Colin Graves and a members of her staff, including former Justice Secretary and Lord Chancellor David Gauke, former Number 10 Chief of Staff Gavin Barwell and former Business Secretary Greg Clark.
