European Council President Donald Tusk is happy about the outcome of the Brexit summit but says there's nothing more the EU can do to help Prime Minister Theresa May.

At the end of a two-day summit in Brussels, Tusk said that "the fate of Brexit is in the hands of our British friends.''

Tusk, who chaired the meeting of EU leaders, said "we are prepared for the worst but hope for the best. As you know, hope dies last.''

May resumes her political battle in the U.K. Parliament to win the endorsement of the Brexit deal she agreed to with EU leaders in November.

The leaders have accepted to delay Brexit from March 29 until May 22 if the British leader succeeds. Should she fail, the EU has given her until April 12 to come up with some new approach.
