The Prime Minister of Denmark, Lars Løkke Rasmussen, is having a very busy week but that didn’t stop him from keeping tabs on the progress of Astralis at the FACEIT London CS:GO Major.
Astralis are, without a shadow of a doubt, the number one Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team on earth and they proved that point in London by defeating Natus Vincere convincingly in the Grand Final of the latest Valve sponsored Major.
The Danes also tore through Team Liquid and FaZe Clan in 2-0 fashion in the playoff stages, meaning that, by the end of the competition, they had beaten the number four, number three and number two teams with ease.
Lars Løkke Rasmussen was in New York City for the United Nations General Assembly discussing things that are probably a bit more important than a Counter-Strike match in London, but that didn’t stop him from supporting his fellow Danes from afar!
The prime minister congratulated the team after their semi-final win over Team Liquid and wished them good luck in the final, saying “I’m confident that your team can go all the way,” then, when he was proven right he wasted no time in congratulating them!
Excellent! :flag-dk: Good luck in the final. I’m confident that your team can go all the way.

According to PolemicFox on Reddit, the Tweet translates to "The news finally reached NYC. Congratulations to Danish team Astralis on a convincing victory."
The level of dominance that Astralis showed in London suggests that Rasmussen will be congratulating the players many more times in the coming months.
