And with the Euros starting at the Hydro Arena, Glasgow, on Thursday (August 2), Max also joined his international team-mates in a friendly against their German, Swiss and French counterparts in Baiersbronn, Germany.

The British team of James Hall, Dom Cunningham Joe Fraser, Courtney Tulloch, Frank Baines and Max scored 248.550 points to finish runners-up behind Germany.
