`Let`s Go,` Obama shouts to Bill Clinton after attending Shimon Peres` funeral
With his sleeves rolled up and apparently keen to leave, Mr Obama stood in the doorway of Air Force One and beckoned Mr Clinton to come aboard.
"Bill, let`s go," Mr Obama shouted twice above the din of the running engines.
Clapping his hands to get Mr Clinton`s attention, the US president motioned for him to join him and again yelled: "Come on, Bill, let`s go!"
With the former leader still busy on the tarmac, Mr Obama exited the plane and stood at the top of the airplane steps, where he shouted: "Bill, let`s go, I gotta get home!"
Finally Mr Clinton climbed the stairs to join the smiling president. The pair then shook hands and patted each other`s backs before stepping inside the plane.
The two dignitaries had been attending the funeral of Shimon Peres in Jerusalem on Friday. Israel`s former prime minister and president, who shared a Nobel Peace Prize in 1994 with former Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, died on Wednesday aged 93.
Mr Clinton was president when Mr Peres negotiated the historic interim peace accord with the Palestinians in 1993.
Among the dozens of other world leaders and statesmen were Prince Charles, who sat among Mr Peres’s family in the front row, Boris Johnson, the Foreign Secretary, David Cameron and Tony Blair.
