English rugby star left hanging at World Cup
England flanker Tom Curry put in a Player of The Match performance against Australia - but is still wasn't good enough to get a handshake from the Japanese woman presenting the prize.
Eddie Jones' men progressed through to the World Cup semi-final after defeating the Aussies 40-16 in Oita.
They now move on to face favourites and reigning champions New Zealand in Yokohama next Saturday.
And after a standout performance in the quarter-finals Curry was handed a trophy for his efforts - and put out a gentleman's handshake when accepting the honour.
But a confused pitchside reporter did not reciprocate the gentle greeting - leaving Curry awkwardly hanging.
Fans on Twitter were left cringing by the awkward exchange, but couldn't help but love Curry's innocent handshake offer.
