Ed Miliband took on 29-year-old electrician Steve Tilley at pool, but lost. Just. The Labour leader issued the challenge while meeting voters at the Old Ball pub in Horsforth, near Leeds.
Tilley, who beat Miliband on the final ball, told the Daily Star: "I hope he wins [the election] so I can say I’ve beaten the prime minister at pool!'."
The paper reports Miliband ordered a pint of bitter and three packets of crisps while talking to its readers in the pub.
