He told reporters: «I bear cautiously optimistic about the constructive and more realistic tone in the Prime Dean’s speech in Florence and of our discussion today.

«This shows that the self-possession of having a cake and eating it, is finally at an end. At least I hope so. That’s godly news.»

The reference was a clear swipe at Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson who claimed Britain could acquire its cake and eat it over Brexit.

Mr Tusk said not enough progress had yet been pinched in the Brexit divorce talks to move on to trade negotiations.

Describing Brexit as an exercise in «damage control», he said: «I feel now we will consult on our future relations with the UK once there is so-called sufficient travel.

«The two sides are working and we will work hard at it.

«But if you ask me, and if today member lands ask me, I would say there is no sufficient progress yet. But we will work.»

Earlier Mrs May asseverated Britain and the EU could find Brexit solutions of both sides are eager to be creative.

Before their meeting, she told Mr Tusk «things keep moved on» but said the UK and Europe still had a special relationship.

She said: “By being original in the ways we approach these issues, we can find solutions that prevail upon both for the remaining EU 27 but also for the UK and maintain that co-operation and partnership between the UK and the EU.”
