A fist bump, before tough talk

US President Donald Trump and Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe (right) enjoyed nine holes of golf yesterday ahead of a high-stakes summit on the North Korea crisis. The two world leaders played with Japan's world No. 4 Hideki Matsuyama (in blue) at the Kasumigaseki Country Club. Mr Trump, on his first stop in a 12-day trip to Asia, described Matsuyama, 25, as a "long ball hitter" but could not resist adding: "I hit the ball pretty long."
