How Many Presidents of China?

I use an app, Speaky, to read news stories to me as I walk the dog. I was walking along this morning, half-asleep as I hadn't had any coffee, when there was something about the piece I was listening to that didn't seem quite right. It was about the President of China, XI Jinping, and growing opposition within the Chinese Communist Party to his authoritarian streak.

As I listened more intently, the audio said something about "Mr. Eleven". I was very confused. Then they gave him his full name: Eleven Jinping.

Mr. XI could start his own soccer team.
