British Twitter reacted positively to Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis appearing on the Good Morning Britain show, with the call of "Let's exchange Mitsotakis with Boris Johnson" being commonly tweeted.
In fact, the channel's call centre received many phone calls from British viewers who had watched Mitsotakis' interview - and both journalists spoke of a "wave of love" for the Greek prime minister.
The British public did not hesitate to compare the Mitsotakis with his British counterpart, Boris Johnson, for the way he handled the interview, while some between serious and funny asked "to exchange prime ministers with the Greeks instead of marbles!"
Some of the comments:
Can we swap Greece’s PM for Boris, instead of the Elgin Marbles

What an impressive man. If only he was our pm
If only we had a prime minister half as good as this guy ...he is the perfect PM

The UK needs the Greek Prime Minister's brains and beauty. Also Ed Balls and Susanna on good form. I saw Jools Holland live with Gregory Porter, Ruby Turner and Marc Almond in Cheltenham. Amazing to hear Jools play this morning, thank you.

A breath of fresh air! So good to hear a PM that is coherent, so unlike our one! It almost restores ones faith to know that there are politicians that answer the questions & they are not taking a swerve to avoid them!

Wow Greek PM on #GMB. Perfect English. Clear. Logical. Calm. Reasonable. Sincere. And a sense of humour. I’m really impressed.

Greek prime minister has my attention. He is speaking, clearly, precisely, has constructive plans , structures what his country is doing and why. I applaud him, this is how a prime minister should be
