It's no secret that the Overwatch World Cup is a big competition, but this story takes it a step further, as it's been revealed that French politician Denis Masséglia has sent a letter of support to France's side, saying it was an honour to cheer for the team's success, and that Secretary of State Mounir Mahjoubi also wishes them luck.

France will be facing Denmark, Argentina, and Thailand in their Group B, which starts today with France facing Argentina. Does this support from politicians signify a change in attitudes towards esports?
