The biggest story of the moment involves the meeting of a couple of huge egos in an exotic location who are both trying to get exactly what they want without getting distracted by others.

No, we're not talking about the latest episode of Love Island, but the historic summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un in Singapore.

Just last year, if you would have told anyone that this meeting was going to take place you would have been called a fool, but 12 months later here we are and the two controversial leaders seem to be getting on rather well.

Understandably, there is a lot of discussion and hubbub surrounding this meeting, and one of the most curious side notes is the presence of former basketball star Dennis Rodman.

The 57-year-old is probably the most high-profile supporter of the North Korean leader after befriending him on a trip to the secretive nation in 2013.

Rodman, who has been flown out to Singapore to witness the event in person, even broke down in tears when discussing the importance of the summit live on CNN.

Rodman, who wore a 'Make America Great Again' cap during the interview, has been vocal in his support of Trump ahead of the summit, and even lashed out at Barack Obama who dismissed Rodman's calls to negotiate with North Korea during his time in office.

Trump and Rodman are no strangers to each other. Rodman was a contestant on the Celebrity Apprentice in 2009, which of course was hosted by Trump.

Rodman did not win that season, but it appears that the subject of North Korea was brought up during the production - or at least afterwards.

In an interview with Business Insider, Rodman stated that Trump did want to go with him to North Korea but quickly got cold feet.

Donald Trump wanted to go. He wanted to give me his plane to go over there. Then all of sudden he started to get all weird and s**t.

In response, Trump quashed any claims that he was interested in going to North Korea and claimed that Rodman was possibly inebriated at the time.

Just over four years later, Donald Trump has shaken hands with Kim Jong-un, spoken about denuclearisation with Dennis Rodman watching on with tears in his eyes.

If this doesn't prove that time can heal or wounds I don't know what will.
