The BBC crew quickly collected their stuff to make way for the US leader while staff swept in to clear the table for him.

According to Sopel, Mr Biden, 78, played it safe ahead of G7 with a Coca Cola, while his wife treated herself to a glass of wine.

He tweeted: "A first in my career @POTUS comes and sits down at table in a bar next to me and orders a drink. Am trying to act nonchalant #G7."

Revealing the couple's order, Sopel posted: "Hope I’m not revealing state secrets but @POTUS drank coke @FLOTUS a glass of red.

That while Mr Biden, who took over Republican leader Donald Trump in January, said he had a "very productive meeting" with the PM.

He told reporters in Cornwall the revitalised Atlantic Charter would address the "key challenges of this century – cyber security, emerging technologies, global health and climate change".

Mr Biden said: "We affirmed the special relationship – that is not said lightly – the special relationship between our people and renewed our commitment to defending the enduring democratic values that both our nations share."

Mr Biden also said Mr Johnson had led a "strong campaign to get people vaccinated across the UK".

Mr Johnson and his newly-wedded wife Carrie were seen hand in hand enjoying a walk with the Bidens, who also held hands as they walked cheerfully beside their counterparts.

The couple also exchanged presents, with the PM, who is known to be passionate about cycling, receiving a US-made bike and helmet.

Mr Johnson gave the Democrats' leader a framed photograph of a mural of American abolitionist Frederick Douglass.

Douglass, a former slave who became a leading figure in the abolitionist movement, travelled to Britain and Ireland in the 1840s on a speaking tour.

Meanwhile, Mrs Johnson, 33 – the PM's third wife – gave Mrs Biden, 70, a first edition of Jamaica Inn author Daphne du Maurier's 1952 novel, The Apple Tree.

Mrs Johnson received a leather tote bag made by military wives and a presidential silk scarf from Dr Biden.

Some of the most powerful world leaders arrived in Cornwall's Carbis Bay on Thursday for the G7 summit, which starts on Friday and will last till Sunday.
