“Borgo Egnazia: Italian PM Giorgia Meloni receives United Kingdom PM Rishi Sunak, as he arrives for the 50th G7 Summit,” wrote news agency ANI while sharing a video on X (formerly Twitter).

However, the Internet soon pointed out an awkward hug-and-kiss moment between the two.

There was then a real ‘eurgh, smelly breath’ energy.”
