Boris Johnson tries 'hongi' greeting in New Zealand

On a visit to New Zealand, Mr Johnson thanked locals for teaching him the hongi greeting, in which people touch their noses together.

He said it was a "beautiful form of introduction - though it might be misinterpreted in a pub in Glasgow if you were to try it".

He is on a nine-day international tour which also takes in Australia.
