The pictures went around the world as a sign of the ‘extra-special relationship’ between Theresa May and Donald Trump – shots of the pair holding hands at the White House.
But yesterday a much less tender explanation emerged for the encounter – that he was clinging on to Mrs May for support because he has a morbid fear of stairs and slopes.
As Mrs May continued to bask in the success of her visit to the White House, a senior source suggested that the President suffers from a condition known technically as bathmophobia.
