Text size Aa Aa

This is the moment Donald Trump shook the hand of his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit in Hamburg.

The footage, captured by the German government, shows the first face-to-face meeting of two of the most powerful men in the world.

The much-anticipated tête-à-tête comes just a day after Trump hit out at Moscow’s ‘destabilising behaviour’.

Trump and Putin are set to hold a separate meeting on the sidelines of the summit later on Friday.
