In pictures: G8 summit body language
Have you heard the one about...

The summit has been interesting for what it says about the West's relationship with Russia.

Here, Vladimir Putin and Mr Bush share a joke.

Expert's view:Bush is covering his mouth with his hand, as if he has something to hide. Putin is smirking, cheeks slightly raised as if genuine amusement. Is this joke less than polite?

It is interesting that Putin has to lean over far more than Bush to hear his aside.
