Serbian president goes viral for waving at non-existent crowd in photo op

Aleksandar Vucic and Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orban were commemorating the opening of the Belgrade to Budapest trainline.

Sat on one of the new trains, the pair waved out of the window as though they were interacting with fans, but as the camera panned around, the station was completely empty and rather dark.
