World Cup Grand finale, Donald Trump blindsides Theresa May, Erdogan's family business

The World This Week takes you from Brussels to London, where the US president's been ruffling feathers, and from Moscow to Helsinki, where his Russian counterpart will go from the World Cup final to that one-on-one summit with Donald Trump. Also, football fever has gripped France ahead of the World Cup final. We also talk about the value drop in Turkey's currency in the first week of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's new term – a term under which he’s been handed enhanced executive powers.

Produced by Charles WENTE, Alessandro XENOS, Melissa KALAYDJIAN.
