UK Prime Minister Theresa May's TV interview at the EU summit in Brussels was interrupted by President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker, who decided to tap the British leader on the shoulder to say hello.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May was speaking to TV journalists at the EU summit in Brussels, explaining her stance on the Brexit negotiation process as well as the recent scandal involving former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, who are in the hospital being treated for exposure to what UK experts believe to be the A234 nerve agent after being found unconscious on the streets of Salisbury.

The European Commission Head Jean-Claude Juncker, however, didn't seem to understand the significance of the moment the UK leader was enjoying, and simply walked towards May to tap her on the shoulder to wave.

Despite being rude and ungentlemanly, the move by the European Commission head didn't seem to prevent skilled politician May from continuing to push her agenda.

The leaders of EU countries met at a summit in the Belgian capital on Thursday to discuss trade, Brexit process and Salisbury attack.
