“Rejoice,” cries the Daily Mail. “Mrs Softee,” is how the Daily Mirror brands Theresa May.

The Daily Mirror interprets the agreement as a win for a soft Brexit, writing that the prime minister abandoned her red lines to get the deal.

The Times claims Theresa May has strengthened her position as prime minister, emboldened by the agreement with Brussels.

The Telegraph highlights the the cost of the Brexit divorce bill and the continued oversight of the European court of justice on its front page.

The Independent has a never-ending front page on just how much work there is to be done on the post-Brexit relationship between the UK and the EU.

The I interprets the agreement as a victory for soft Brexit.

The Guardian writes that the battle for Brexit is just beginning, and that many challenges on the final agreement lie ahead.

The Daily Express squeezes in a welcome for the deal alongside the weather news.
