Video emerged this week suggesting Donald Trump might be very precious about his personal space.

And he's not the only one - researchers at the University of Wroclaw in Poland have just released a study on the distance people in various countries would like you to stay away from them.


Argentina was the friendliest nation, with people perfectly happy to let you stand up to 76 cm away from them.

Romanians however, topped the 'step away from me' list, and would like you to refrain from approaching within a 139 cm radius of their personal area.

Britain end up somewhere in the middle, with an ideal personal space distance of 99 cm.
