Michel, Von der Leyen sign post-Brexit trade deal

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen (pictured left) and European Council President Charles Michel (pictured right) signed on Wednesday the trade agreement that will take effect after the end of the Brexit transition period.

The accord will now be sent to London for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to sign.

After inking the papers, the EU officials didn't take questions, nor give speeches. Michel tweeted shortly afterward, describing the coming time as a "new chapter" for a "new relationship" with London.
