David Cameron and Nick Clegg are set for a footballing showdown just three weeks after the General Election, with both leaders' teams facing off in the FA Cup final.
After today's shock semi-final win over Liverpool, the Prime Minister, an Aston Villa fan, tweeted his congratulations to his team.
The victory means Villa will play Nick Clegg's favoured side, Arsenal, at Wembley on 30 May - by which point it will be clear whether the PM and his deputy are still political colleagues.

Lewis Hamilton's domination of Formula One continued in Bahrain as the reigning world champion clinched his ninth victory in the past 11 races.
As in China a week ago it was another masterful, controlled drive from Hamilton who has now set a personal best record of finishing in the points for 11 consecutive grands prix.
Overall, Hamilton now has 36 career wins, with 21 of those from pole position to open up a 27-point cushion over Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg, who had to settle for third behind Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen.
It was Raikkonen's seventh podium in Bahrain, with the Finn runner-up now on four occasions, but with this his first top-three finish since the 2013 Korean Grand Prix.
Hamilton finished a comfortable 3.3 seconds clear of Raikkonen, who made his way past Rosberg on lap 56 of the 57 under the lights of the Bahrain International Circuit courtesy of a mistake from the German who seemingly had trouble with his brakes late on.

Jenson Button's wretched Bahrain Grand Prix weekend concluded even before the race started.
After incurring issues in both practice sessions on Friday, and again in qualifying on Saturday, Button's car failed to even make it out of the McLaren garage for the race at the Bahrain International Circuit.
Button was scheduled to start 20th and last after an electrical problem brought his qualifying to a halt after just three corners of his opening lap.
Despite his team of mechanics working feverishly to fix the problem, data materialised ahead of the evening event showing an issue still unresolved that could be traced back to the ongoing electrical problems.
With no guarantees the issue would not reoccur, on that basis it was determined the car would not be readied to start the race.
David Silva needed almost ten minutes of treatment on the pitch and was eventually stretchered off with what looked like a nasty head/facial injury after an incident involving Cheikhou Kouyate.
