The G7 leaders arrived for the photo at 14:37 local time.

They were led by Chancellor Sholz and PM Boris Johnson. President Biden wore his Aviators as he was approaching the photo stage but took them off before taking his position.

All male G7 leaders were tieless.

Sholz said something indistinct about giving the photographers five minutes.

“I’d be shocked if they haven’t got it,” Boris Johnson responded.

Biden looked at the ranks of photographers from left to right.
