Just when we thought Prime Minister John Key had left the awkward three-way handshake behind him, he has had an equally awkward greeting with Canadian counterpart Justin Trudeau.

While talking trade at the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum in Lima, Peru, Mr Key dressed up in a traditional Peruvian shawl for the world leaders' "family photo".

As the group files in to have its photo taken, Mr Trudeau stands on his tip toes and wiggles from side to side trying to block Mr Key from the photo.

The Mr Key then imitates the wiggle before putting his hands on Mr Trudeau's waist to put him back into his place.

The other leaders can be heard laughing and US President Barack Obama is seen looking over his shoulder to see what the fuss is about.

"I just said to him, typical, you are trying to block me out…We just had a bit of a laugh," Mr Key said afterwards.

When asked about the budding bromance, Mr Key gushed and said: "He's got a great sense of humour, bit of a laugh."
