But hawk-eyed football fans took notice of similarities of the handshake to Arsenal pair's Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The handshake between the two Arsenal forward has become a custom ever since Aubameyang sealed a move to the Emirates in January 2018.

So famous the celebration has become that fans now believe the UK leaders mimicked it in their meeting.

“The Queen > Laca,” a second compared.

A third wondered if the two are actually Gooners: “Why, are they an Arsenal fan?”
