Amidst the ongoing G7 summit in Italy, a moment between UK PM Rishi Sunak and Italy PM Giorgia Meloni went viral. As Sunak arrived at the summit and was being greeted by Meloni, the dup shared a hug and kiss, which has been dubbed 'awkward' by the media. Then, at the end of Thursday's session, the two leaders made a joint post on their Instagram account talking about how shared values about their vision for their respective countries unite them.
"Control of our borders. Defence of national sovereignty. That is what unites our politics. That is what unites our two countries," the post was captioned, in both Italian and English.

On Thursday, the Tories received a major setback in the opinion poll. While they were already trailing behind Keith Starmer-led Labour campaign, a The Times YouGov poll showed that Nigel Farage's UK Reform Party has now overtaken the Tories to become the second most likely to be elected.
According to the poll, which was done on Wednesday and Thursday among a group of 2,221 people, showed that the Reform party has gained two percentage point to get passed the Tories. They have 19% favourable opinion, as compared to the Tories with 18%.
Meanwhile, the Labour party is leading all the charts in the opinion poll, with the latest YouGov survey showing that they have 37% of people potentially rooting for them.
Sky News election analyst, Will Jennings, said that the Tories falling down to the third place "represents a moment of huge danger" for the party.
"Because of the geography of their support, Reform are not projected to win many seats, but they could still cost the Conservatives wins in narrowly contested seats across the country," Jennings said, adding that it will make a significant difference in many constituencies.
