  • Pedro Sánchez supported the move to give Britain until 31 October to leave the EU

The Spanish prime minister, Pedro Sánchez, was in Brussels this week for the emergency meeting of EU leaders to decide upon an extension for the UK's departure.

Sánchez supported the move to give Britain until 31 October, saying the ball was now in the UK's court.

"Nobody wants a hard Brexit but nobody is ruling it out," he added.
