Modi’s iron grip leaves a palm print on Prince William after handshake
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have played football and fed elephants on their much publicized tour of India this week, but it was a meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi that really got the internet going.

Modi’s strong diplomatic grip appears to have made quite an impact on the Prince, whose hand was left white with the lingering imprint of Modi’s handshake.

The Duke kept his composure throughout and didn’t appear to be in any actual physical pain, not that that stopped the online community having a little laugh at his expense.

But Prince William isn’t the first to fall foul to online mockery as a result of the Indian PM’s robustly physical approach to diplomacy.

France’s President Francois Hollande “titanic hug” did the rounds earlier this year, with some online commentators awarding it the “most awkward hug ever” accolade.
