Son of a bus driver, Mayor Khan grew up in a public housing project and is the first Muslim mayor in the UK, the first Muslim mayor anywhere in the EU. Sadiq was a lawyer and 3rd Muslim in Parliament.

Sadiq is Labour, succeeding conservative Mayor Boris who I suspect will be running for PM and beating competitor Goldsmith for thd job.

Take that, USA!

Mayor of London is a big deal.

London was there when THE Iulius Caesar invaded and, with great difficulties, built the first rickety "London Bridge" across a very tidal and muddy river  Thames over 2000 years ago.
