G7 summit: The official photo — and the sideshows

The world leaders gathering in England’s Cornwall for the G7 summit went for a socially distanced look in their official portrait, arrayed on risers on the beach.

The summit will run for three days at a resort at England’s westernmost tip. (Not Fawlty Towers. Unfortunately.)
