There are increasing fears for the British Prime Minister's eyesight after an incident that took place in New York on Wednesday. During a press conference designed to promote the upcoming G20 meeting in London, Gordon Brown appeared to believe he was hugging his wife (who was in fact off-stage), while in reality, he was putting his arm around little more than thin air. Downing Street has brushed off the incident, stating that the PM was in fact "Making a joke about how he wishes he could put his arms around ordinary Brits."
Mr Brown is blind in one eye and has deteriorating eyesight in the other as a result of a rugby accident that occured when he was aged 16.
