Narenda Modi is the Prime Minister of India. As a result he meets lots of powerful and important people.

When he meets them, he likes to hug them, hold their hands and basically give them no personal space whatsoever.

It's pretty adorable.

He sent Twitter into meltdown this week after photographs of his meeting with Putin made looked like a wedding shoot.

But this isn't the first time he's shown a lot of affection towards a fellow world leader.

He met newly elected French President Emmanuel Macron today, and gave him a huge embrace.

(Let's hope Tradeau doesn't get jealous).

He also gave Macron's predecessor François Hollande a huge hug on his trip to India.

It's not just world leaders either, as Iyad el-Baghdadi points out, he also has a habit of tugging at children's ears.

He just can't stop hugging people.

This is the same guy that did this to Prince William's hand.
