President Barack Obama and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin held a discussion on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Turkey this weekend.

While it's not known exactly what the leaders of the two superpowers were discussing, a video of the incident has caught everyone's attention.

All because of this guy trying to get in the way of the camera...

There have been several theories flying around online as to what he was doing. Some have suggested that he just wanted to be on television, others that he was being nosy and trying to eavesdrop on the conversation and yet more who suggested he was a foreign spy trying to film the exchange on a camera in his bag.

While some people suggested he was responsible for this close-up picture...

... it actually appears to have been taken by the man with a camera - seen in the video footage at around 0:38
