Australian Defence Minister Peter Dutton has found himself in quite an awkward situation as he posed for a photo with his South Korean counterpart Suh Wook. The latter raised his arm in order to do a COVID-19 friendly elbow bump.
However, Peter Dutton didn’t appear to understand what he was supposed to do and simply raised his hand in a similar manner. Mr Wook’s attempt to right the situation made it even more awkward. As a result, the South Korean defence minister had to take his counterpart’s arm and show him what to do.
A video showing the awkward situation went viral immediately after it was posted online. Many users admitted that Peter Dutton made their day as they were crying with laughter.
