From Melodi to Biden's gaffe: 5 viral moments from G7 Italy

The G7 Summit kicked off on June  13 and concluded on June 15, 2024 at Borgo Egnazia (Fasano) in Apulia, Italy with various world leaders attending the event. 

Videos and images of several world leaders including Italy's Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, US President Joe Biden and others went viral during the summit. Let's take a look at some of them.

Giorgia Meloni greeted many global leaders with the Indian gesture of Namaste. Take a look.

Italy PM Meloni's #Melodi selfie video with India's PM Modi goes viral. Watch.

A viral video showing Giorgia Meloni rolling her eyes at French President Emmanuel Macron and their less-than-friendly handshake did the rounds on the internet.

A clip of the US president Joe Biden went viral in which he can be seen making a 'salute' gesture to greet Meloni and others.

In another gaffe, Biden can be seen wandering off weirdly out of the frame. However, a NBC video showed another angle of the video in which Biden was seen walking up to the parachutists to give them a thumbs up.
