US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin have met for the first time after months of intense speculation about their relationship - and Mr Trump appeared to give the Russian leader slap on the back.
The highly anticipated handshake happened earlier today,and was caught on camera by journalists at the G20 Summit in Hamburg before it was posted to Facebook by the German Cabinet.
As officials gathered around a table, a towering Mr Trump was seen gripping Mr Putin's right arm firmly with both hands, before casually slapping him on the back in an apparent gesture of friendliness.
The two were seen exchanging pleasantries and both smiled as they stood side-by-side at the white meeting table.
