When Indian Prime Minister shook hands Tuesday with Britain's Prince William, he made quite an impression. As seen above, the ghostly outlines of his vice-like grip are clearly visible on William's red hand after the encounter.
Perhaps William had heard rumors about Modi's strong clench because as he stares at Modi's open hand in the picture below, he seems to hesitate.
During the actual handshake, William maintains the famous British stiff upper lip.
But, ouch, once his hand is free, we can see the damage.
