David Cameron has got behind the wheel of a car for the first time in three years.
But the Prime Minister admitted that his choice of vehicle will not please his friend, the broadcaster and notorious "petrolhead" Jeremy Clarkson, as it was one of the Japanese-made electric cars used to shuttle delegates around the G20 summit in St Petersburg, Russia.
After getting used to being ferried around by chauffeurs in the three years since becoming Prime Minister in 2010, Mr Cameron joked that he was pleased to find that his driving skills remain intact and he did not cause any accidents.
He told reporters in St Petersburg: "I think I will have upset my constituent Jeremy Clarkson by driving an electric car.
"It was the first time I've driven on a road for three years, but there were no accidents, no car crashes."
The G20 summit in St Petersburg exposed stark divisions between host Vladimir Putin and US President Obama over Syria.
War emptied the suburb of Yarmouk in southern Damascus of its people. Assad's army holds it, but their prize is a ghost town.
Even in the President's heartland of Baltimore, 95% of voters are against his policy on military intervention in Syria.
