The President of South Africa, Jacob Zuma, paid a visit to the Sainsbury's supermarket in Greenwich today.
Zuma, known for his polygamist weddings, is on his first State Visit to the UK after becoming president last year.
It's reported that Zuma requested the visit himself because of the trading links between Sainsbury's and his country. He was greeted at the supermarket by Sainsbury's CEO, Justin King, and shown some of the products that Sainbury's imports from South Africa, such as wine, apples, grapes and flowers.
Justin King said, "We have strong links with South Africa, so we're delighted to welcome President and Mrs Zuma to our store in Greenwich.
"We're proud of what we have achieved at this store. It has acted as a blueprint for many of our subsequent environmental stores, so it is apt that the first state visit to a British supermarket should happen here."
