US PRESIDENT Donald Trump has named Woody Johnson, a billionaire investor and American football team owner, as US ambassador to Britain.
The 70-year-old's ownership of National Football League (NFL) team the New York Jets was cited by Trump when explaining his choice of ambassador. It remains to be seen whether sporting tactics translate into international relations.
Johnson, a descendent of the family behind pharmaceutical company Johnson & Johnson, is not a surprise candidate for the role. As early as January this year, Trump referred to him as ambassador.
